The primary goal of this workshop is to develop confidence in our abilities to:
• Integrate the Richmond Pledge into our daily lives;
• Recognize and challenge systemic racism;
• Confront racism and bias in our everyday lives; and
• Take leadership in ending racism in our community, our culture, and our lives.
As part of the workshop, participants develop a community of support and an understanding of how to use support in deepening our work in building a just and equitable multicultural world.
Suggested donation for the workshop is $30 per person ($20 if UU congregant) and includes workshop materials, lunch on the first Saturday, and coffee, drinks, and other snacks for both workshop days. If you’re able to offer more, it will help spread the Pledge to others. If you’re able to offer less, that’s fine, too. No one will be turned away based on ability to pay.
1. If you sign up, you must attend all of both the January 18 and January 25 sessions.
2. There are a few hours of pre-reading that needs to be done before the first workshop day, and some reading to be done between sessions. If you agree to participate, you are agreeing to do that reading ahead of time. We will send out the link to participants once they register.
Who’s this Class For?
