Infinite Inclusion Series: Expand your Awareness on Racism
Infinite Inclusion Series: Expand your Awareness on Racism is a seminar and discussion group on the topic of racism, held the second Monday of the month from April thru September. Our format: watch a video or movie prior to attending the group and be prepared to share your ideas and insights about what you have watched. Come willing to be open, honest and grow as we shine a light on our own blind spots and reveal hidden systemic racism, so we can all do our part to foster a more just and inclusive society.
On Monday, April 12, we will watch and discuss “How Studying Privilege Systems Can Strengthen Compassion,” a TEDtalk by Peggy McIntosh at TEDxTimberlaneSchools. Please register in order to receive the group discussion Zoom link.
