As you may know, the Sacred Conversations on Race team has scheduled three workshops that they are calling White Privilege 101.
This series is in response to conversations among many Old First folk who want 1) to develop a deeper understanding of the origins of racism and white privilege, and 2) to gain the tools needed to have substantive conversations with others, and especially folk who we might disagree with.
The series continues this coming Sunday, 9.25 with a workshop titled: The Economic Cost of Mass Incarceration. We will explore the impact that the prison industrial complex has on our country’s economy.
We believe these sessions will give us a solid foundation upon which to begin to break through the paralyzing vastness of racism, which is the first step towards dismantling this enduring form of oppression.
The sessions are both informational and conversational and usually take about 90 minutes. It will occur directly after worship.
