Dialoguing Across Race, Class, Power and Privilege
** Please pre-register and sign up for child care ** (see below)
This workshop for UUCB members, long-time friends and staff is a follow-up to Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity. If you missed it, here is a sampling of participant take-aways – and expectations for this one:
WHAT I LEARNED:
“It’s much harder to recognize racism when doors are open to me (as a white woman) than it is for people who find doors closed to them.”
“It very much enhanced my awareness of systemic racism.”
“I was introduced to the concept of ‘Post-traumatic Slave Disorder,’ and learned that blacks aren’t the only ones affected by it.”
WHAT I EXPECT:
“I want to have loving conversations about racism and other ‘isms’.”
“More training! I want to be understood — and to understand others.”
“Just to develop the skill of meaningful dialog. How can I be effective?”
Note: This workshop stands alone. You need not have attended the first one to learn the skills that will be presented in this one!
