Antiracism Learning Circle
~a community space for learning and practicing antiracism~
Led by Rev. Paul Ford, Rev. Willard Bass of Institute for Dismantling Racism and Rev Christy Clore
This monthly community meeting space is open to all who share the value of dismantling personal, cultural and institutional racism in Winston-Salem and beyond. This group grew out of HOPE TANK W-S which formed to study and practice nonviolent social change. It was formally named “Communicating Effectively about Racism”.
Each meeting includes: time to review the “wall of history” and discuss past and current events, quiet time for reflection and centering, a review of nonviolent principles, and discussion of what is coming up for members of the group as they work to dismantle white supremacy. We invite you to bring stories from your own experiences to share, or to just come ready to work with whatever emerges in the group.
This is a space for coming together across lines of racial difference as well as differences in age, experience, religious/spiritual beliefs, sexual and gender identity and political affiliation. The only requirements are a willingness to engage in honest and respectful conversation.
When: Every other Thursday, 12:00-1:30 pm. Join us for our next meeting on September 21st
