Building Empathy and Addressing Racial Oppression–Day 1

October 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sliding Scale (see description for details)
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.
For participants under the age of 25, admission is free. For members over 25, admission is from $25-$75. For non-members over 25, admission is from $50-$100. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, please contact us if money is a barrier.
For any questions contact [email protected] or call 802-863-2345 x9.
