Upcoming PJC Events
The following events are hosted, organized, co-sponsored, or in collaboration with/by the Peace & Justice Center and are open to the public – we hope you can join us!
We charge a fee for many of our publicly hosted programs. No individual is turned away from any of our our programs due to a lack of funds. People under 25 are not expected to contribute financially. We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.
How To Be An Antiracist Book Discussion
December 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
December 1, 3, 10, and 15
In his book, Ibram X. Kendi weaves together ethics, history, law, and science–including the story of his own awakening to antiracism. He challenges readers to rethink their deeply held beliefs (even if implicit) and their personal relationships and reexamine the policies they support. This discussion will take a critical look at Kendi’s ideas, unpack, dissect, and reflect them as we think about how we can take ourselves from being “not racist” to “antiracist”.
This program is being offered for free thanks to the generosity of the Charlotte Public Library and the Carpenter-Carse Public Library. This program is only for those in towns served by the libraries mentioned above.
This is a four part book discussion, participants are expected to attend all four sessions. If the workshop fills, priority will be given to those who can attend all four sessions. Space is limited and registration is required. Register below.
