Seeing and Disrupting Racism: A Workshop: Tuesday, April 9, 7-9pm
This program was developed for predominantly white audiences because efforts to end racism does not fall solely on those oppressed. In it the group will explore what racism is and why it is often difficult for white communities (and individuals) to see it. It will include going through the concept of white fragility and specific ways to disrupt racism. This event is being hosted as part of a series put together in collaboration with the Montpelier Senior Center, consider join more of these curated events.
This event is part of a series co-sponsored by the City of Montpelier and Kellogg-Hubbard Library and hosted by the Montpelier Senior Activity Center.
Please know that this series is designed in large part to engage and encourage White people to do racial justice work. To this end, while many of PJC’s workshops have multi-racial attendance, they do “center” Whiteness in a way that can be frustrating, harmful, and/or just not as meaningful to People of Color (POC). This is not always the case. We trust that individuals know best what will be most useful to them. If you are a POC and wish to discuss this, please let the Peace & Justice Center know.
Advance registration is encouraged at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center office and can be done with Montpelier Senior Activity Center registration form or online; space is limited. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and people age 25 and younger are not charged.
