Change Is Coming Discussion Group:

Challenging Our Prejudices and Attitudes

Change Is Coming Discussion Group:  Challenging Our Prejudices and Attitudes
Facilitators: Shirley Nelson and Laura Imbornoni
Saturday, July 24 | 12:30 - 2 pm | Online Event | Donations appreciated

Registration deadline: July 23

Join us for the last discussion group in the series on examining our prejudice and bias towards race. New and returning attendees welcome.  If you were for the previous sessions, you helped create a space of open reflection and dialogue about the pandemic of racism.  Some may have walked away with a deeper understanding of our mutual struggle to survive in a world that seems intent on keeping us separate and divided even on the most basic levels.  Healing is revealed in stories we share because it opens our hearts and touches the humanity of each other. A number of stories have been shared during this series, and there are plenty more! Each one will help us understand the suffering that's caused at each end of the divide.

Change is coming and it’s up to you and me to activate the love that resides inside each and every one of us that shines the light on a brighter tomorrow.  Come sit at the table and contribute in the spirit of collaboration and compassion.  All are welcome to bring lunch or a snack to this midday meeting. We're eager to see new faces, and can't wait to see those who attended previously. Your open conversation and curious mind may lead to creative outcomes that are beneficial to all. Together we can E-Racism.
