*No prior knowledge on these topics is required. White folks, who may have thought less about these issues, are especially encouraged to attend. All participants must come committed to doing anti-racist work, including challenging how racism has affected your own thoughts and behaviors. The goal is to gain a clearer understanding of the effects of racism on society at all levels and how to combat its virulent hold over ourselves and our culture.
**This event will also provide a space for white folks to practice productively addressing racially problematic statements from other white folks. This event is intended to be an educational space for white folks who wish to take on a more anti-racist stance. All are welcome, but because individuals may vary in their paths to becoming and ally, some comments may be triggering for students of color.
Please read ahead of time, and join us for dinner and conversation.
