“Inspiring, Achieving and Celebrating Inclusion”

‘Currently operating in solidarity with’ is undeniably an action. It describes what a person is doing in the moment. It does not give credit for past acts of solidarity without regard for current behavior. It does not assume future acts of solidarity. It speaks only to the actions of the present.

White Allies 101: Being a Better Anti-Racist

Register Now!
Dr. David W. Campt, has asked an important question. “Do you struggle, as a White person, to advance the cause of anti-racism in your community?” If so, you are not alone. “Many White allies are in need of effective tools to engage in honest and productive conversations about race with their White friends, relatives and neighbors.” They need skills and tools for outreach, engagement, and change making.

 

This Culture Quest will focus on “helping these allies have more effective encounters with people who are skeptical that racism is a problem.” Deploying Campts’ approach to ally building, and making use of proven persuasion techniques, this four-hour interactive workshop will provide participants with concrete skills and tools to advance anti-racism and racial equity.  Please join us!  Policy makers, business leaders, educators, students, and communities are encouraged to participate and make it possible for those in your sphere to attend.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
