Courageous Conversations: Racism in Moderate America

No justice, no peace demands commitment.   The fight for racial justice has many fronts: from understanding our nation's history of slavery to raising up black culture, unpacking learned racism to promoting political engagement and voting in upcoming elections for change  .special hour-long Courageous Conversation about Racism and how to become a white Ally. This is a safe space for communication and listening.

What we need to understand about open conversations is that you are probably going out to say something wrong. In this is the safe space to do it. You are probably going to be defensive. That is what happens when we are learning about experiences that criticize elements of who we are that we haven’t been aware of prior. We need to realize that any frustration you are feeling is just a small indication of what Black people experience everyday.

1. Everyone in this conversation is an equal. Meaning that there must be mutual respect in all exchanges 2. No name calling or calling people out of their names 3. Please keep all feedback to two minutes to give everyone a chance to speak 4. Everyone is allowed to be in different place in their journey for deconstructing racism 5. All fears, reoccurring questions, inquires, and statements are welcome here without scrutiny 6. Remember truth can feel like an attack when it’s confronting what you believe to true. So when you feel defensiveness, keep that in mind. 7. Do not cut anyone off, speak over them, or redirect their speech. We will freely make statements and members of the group of will be allowed to respond.

This is open to everyone who is join the meeting to listen, learn with open hearts and minds.
