Racial Justice and the Climate Movement Dialogue Application - Fall 2019
THE SERIES IS FULL AND REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED! Please fill this out if you want to be kept in the loop for future dialogues!

Join White Noise Collective, Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) RI, No LNG in PVD and the FANG Collective for a dialogue series on understanding racism in the climate movement. This 5-part dialogue series is designed to support white climate justice activists and other white co-conspirators in the Rhode Island area in making connections between climate justice and racial justice and how to incorporate anti-oppression into our movements and organizations. Participants will commit to 4 three-hour sessions and will be guided through readings, exercises, and dialogue to reflect on the ways that white supremacy and other forms of oppression show up in our culture, organizations, relationships and within ourselves.

Some of the topics discussed will include: white supremacy culture and how it impacts our organizations, how non-native people can show up in solidarity with indigenous movements and leadership, accountability with front-line communities, Jemez Principles, Green New Deal, and strategies for shifting organizing culture to address oppression when it shows up.

We use these dialogue spaces to develop greater self-awareness, literacy, and accountability in order to show up with more integrity to the movement work in which each of us is involved. We also investigate larger patterns and systems of racism including white supremacy culture, intersections of race, class, and gender, and practices of allyship.

Please complete this application to join our next dialogue series! The deadline is September 19, 2019 and the dialogue will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The first dialogue is Wednesday, September 25th, 6 PM - 9 PM. Because we are building a learning community and developing trust to be able to go deep into these topics, we ask that people only sign up if they are seriously committed to showing up to EVERY dialogue. It's okay if you end up having to miss 1. Please think about if you're able to commit to showing up before applying for this session. The dates are:
