Community Conversations on Race - Continuing the Work of Racial Justice

LET'S CONTINUE THE WORK OF RACIAL JUSTICE
Interrupting Racism

We need to keep doing the work of Interrupting Racism: Let's Continue the Conversation and Practice. . .

"We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." 
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • In this virtual gathering, facilitators will create a place for ongoing conversation in order to build skills for anti-racist activism and cultural competency. 
  • Participants will engage in discussion and reflective activities in order to lean into courageous conversations both in our sessions and in their own lives.

"What would it mean to live in a city whose people were changing each other's despair into hope?—
You yourself must change it.—
what would it feel like to know your country was changing?—
You yourself must change it.—
Though your life felt arduous 
new and unmapped and strange what would it mean to stand on the first page of the end of despair?"
From "From Dreams Before Waking" 1983, by Adrienne Rich
