The Cost of Exclusion
RBC Racial Justice & Equity Series Dates: November 4, 9, 11, 18
@ Zoom Meeting Session
The act of exclusion refers to the denial of opportunities and resources for specific groups. Some individuals argue that exclusion brings on distress for those who are being targeted and is detrimental to those who are targeting others. The action of being exclusive has been linked to removing people who were deemed undesirable or a threat to perceived superior group. Unfortunately, exclusion continues to occur in our society to the detriment of those facing threats to their basic needs. In these instances, we ask: Is justice REALLY for all? What groups of people feel excluded in our society? Who, in particular, is left out? In what ways are people’s differences being diminished? Whose input is not being considered? Is our society truly benefiting and progressing when groups of people are excluded? What is the cost exclusion?
