Seeing and Disrupting Racism

This program was developed for predominantly white audiences because efforts to end racism does not fall solely on those oppressed. We start by defining racism. Then we walk participants through the concept of white fragility. We go over how white fragility perpetuates racism and specific ways to disrupt that cycle. Free for all and there is not registration needed. People are encouraged to arrive at 1:30pm to participate in a PJC New Volunteer Orientation.
