Dialogue on Race
The YWCA is now offering Dialogue on Race, a 6 session series that encourages open and honest discussion led by trained facilitators. Understanding what racism is and how it operates in our system and society is the core of this educational process. Some of the topics discussed are definitions of racism, prejudice and stereotypes, examples of personal experiences of racism, institutional racism and power, changes that have occurred and those still needed, and action steps for individuals to effect change.
The Dialogue on Race weekly groups are held at the YWCA office. The group is limited to 15 participants with a balance of diversity in race, ethnicity, age and gender. The total cost of the 6-week series is $25. Participants are asked to commit to at least 5 out of 6 sessions.
