Disrupting Racism Series
Disrupting Racism Three Part Series
Social Capital Inc. is partnering with Network for Social Justice to bring you the Disrupting Racism Series on Tuesday, February 9th, 23rd, and March 9th. This three part series is intended to give participants tools and language they need to disrupt racism in their own community. The workshops will focus on how to engage in social justice on a micro-level. Participants will learn how to have small-scale conversations surrounding race and racism with their family, friends and colleagues. They will map out their own anti-racism journeys, learn key concepts and theories surrounding racial justice, and gain practical tools they can use to disrupt racism in their everyday lives.
Two co-facilitators, Hermayne Gordon and Liora Norwich, will lead participants through terms, theoretical models, and actionable concepts, and each session will conclude with a series of practical applications of antiracism which can be applied to their own personal and/or professional work. An outline can be found here.
It is recommended that participants attend all 3 sessions but the option to register for one day is also available. Priority for this event will be given to those who live, work, and/or worship in Winchester and Woburn, but those from other communities are welcome to attend as well. The content is appropriate for adults and students in high school level or beyond.
Please indicate which of the sessions you plan to attend when you register. Registration for each session will remain open until the scheduled date of that session. Each session will begin at 7PM and run for 2 hours.
The sessions will take place 2/9, 2/23 & 3/9.
