Upcoming PJC Events

The following events are hosted, organized, co-sponsored, or put on in partnership with/by the Peace & Justice Center and are open to the public – we hope you can make them!

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 so. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, nothing, or more? View our Sliding Scale document to choose an amount that feel appropriate to you.

Toxic Whiteness Bag Lunch Discussion Group

August 22, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Each discussion group will begin with a different reading, video, or audio file that sets the tone for a facilitated discussion. It is harmful to racial justice work when white people’s emotional needs are prioritized over those of people of color in multi-racial spaces. This space is held specifically for white people, to help process how white supremacy culture is toxic to white communities and individuals. It seeks to help people who experience white privilege see and understand how undoing racism directly benefits them. The hope is that by having a separate space to process toxic whiteness, white people will be better able to allow for the emotional needs of people of color to take priority in multi-racial spaces.
