   RACIAL JUSTICE RISING AND VISIONING B.E.A.R. PRESENT a two part workshop

What is the World We Wish to Build: Solidarity in a time of Supremacy

  • We are confronted with racism: What is it? What are our learned answers? Is it a social construction or biology? What does it look like in the world today… in the U.S….in our everyday lives?
  • What do we want? How do we build it? We will explore these issues, determined to find courses of action.  We will all commit to a place of openness, fearlessness and community when we delve into these issues.

This two part workshop is free but there is a $10 registration fee which is expected with your registration. This fee can be waived or reduced for folks who would be prevented from attending due to cost. Space is limited and participants are expected to attend both days.  We especially hope that high school and college age people will attend.
