This interactive session is designed to look critically at the current state of racism in our communities and our nation and the current impact for BIPOC folks in the post George Floyd era. A key goal will be teaching, sharing, and learning practical tools for working in our own communities to combat racism and to start conversations on addressing racism and difference in predominantly white spaces. This session is a mixture of lecture and small-group work, and runs 90 minutes.
