Developing Your Super Powers:
Disrupting Interpersonal Racism Series - via Zoom!
Danielle Cosgrove, presenter
William Shaul, presenter
Robin Harbage, presenter
Lisa Vahey, host
It can be challenging to talk about racism, white supremacy, and even the news, yet we must build our skills to help us move toward equity and justice. How do we step into the challenge, away from “negative peace, which is the absence of tension, to a positive peace, which is the presence of justice”? (Dr. King) This session will focus on building new knowledge and working through role plays to help us practice deep listening skills. We will also have guest presenters to help us learn a structure to change the culture of conversations about race, finding alternatives to the polarized and judgmental nature of these exchanges that tie our politics and problem-solving into knots. This skill can lead to more productive conversations and joint action with people of all races. If you’ve attended this class in the past, you are welcome to participate in it again.
