Building Empathy & Addressing Racial Oppression

October 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Free – $75
Wednesdays October 16, 23, 30 from 6:30-8:30pm

 

This program strives to give participants the opportunity to build skills and knowledge to engage in conversations about oppression. Participants are expected to attend all three parts of this workshop. The first session will focus on the concept of white fragility, the struggle for dominant communities to tolerate discussions on race without feeling shame, guilt, or victimization. The second session dives into myths and stereotypes in order to identify subconscious bias and how these bias affect our daily lives. The final session offers tools and guidelines for action in order to reaffirm our commitment to creating and supporting an anti-oppressive society.

 

This series is led by Hal Colston and Netdahe Stoddard.

 

Free for people under 25 yrs old. Sliding scale. Full workshop cost is $75. $50 for PJC members. Those who can pay the full price and/or more: please do. Those who can’t afford to pay: don’t sweat it.
