Community Conversations on Race - Continuing the Work of Racial Justice
THE WORK OF SEEKING RACIAL JUSTICE
Next Community Conversation is scheduled for May 26, 2021 at 7PM (EST)
Special Guest Speaker
Dr. Ali Michael
Educating for Equity
"Widen the Path: White People Helping Other White People Walk an Anti-Racist Path. "
In this virtual gathering, facilitators create a place for ongoing conversation in order to build skills for anti-racist activism and cultural competency.
- Participants engage in discussion and reflective activities in order to lean into courageous conversations both in our sessions and in their own lives.
- From Ali Michael - "Race questions are not meant to lead us into a quagmire of guilt, discomfort, or isolation. Sustained race inquiry is meant to lead to anti-racist classrooms, positive racial identities, and a restoration of the wholeness of spirit and community that racism undermines."
