Register for “Wake Up & Work” Anti-Racism Workshop Series
Join PJALS steering committee vice-chair Taylor Weech for a series of evening workshops addressing what anti-racist principles look like in practice and planning ways to get more deeply involved as a multicultural coalition of members in identifying and addressing the racial elements of the issues we work on from police oversight to militarism and war. Register (at no cost) here!
We’ll start on a personal scale, exploring our own stories of race and how being vulnerable in our individual stories can open a space to look honestly at our own biases and behaviors and how the big stories of race in our country and region’s history show up in our family and neighborhood stories.
Moving through the three weeks, we’ll also put into practice–through role-play and story sharing–ways to interrupt both individual racism and the myths perpetuated by structural racism. Participants can expect to leave more certain of their role in combating racism and more prepared to engage in conversation and confrontation about race.
Registration is now open!
