Race and Society Part II - September 2018 Equity Alliance Roundtable 

The Equity Alliance of the North Coast is excited to continue our public Racial Equity Roundtables with our next offering September 6, conversations about "Race and Society", in which we will look more closely at structural racism. If race is not biology, what is it? Please join us as we examine how race resides not in nature but in politics, economics, and culture. Using part II of Episode 3 of the PBS series "Race: the Power of an Illusion" as beginning point, we will work to understand the ways in which social institutions (like schools, banks, and governments) “create” race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status, and wealth to white people. All Roundtable sessions include time for personal reflection (including thinking and feeling), small group conversation, and practice talking about race, with an aim of supporting productive dialogue about race and racism both during the session and beyond. Facilitated by Melissa Meiris and Ron White. Register soon as space is limited. Event registration is sliding scale ($5, $10 or $15) and scholarships are available. If you need a scholarship, please choose "Pay at Door" as your payment option while registering and email your scholarship request to equitynorthcoast@hafoundation.org. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Please feel free to bring food if that is most convenient. Child care will be provided by the Equity Alliance for the duration of the event because of our generous donors. If you would like to bring a teenaged family member to the event, please let us know by emailing equitynorthcoast@hafoundation.org and we will provide a scholarship.

Cancellations: A full refund will be given if your registration is canceled 24 hours prior to the session for which you registered. Any cancellations within that time-frame are non-refundable, with exception for those with emergencies.
