Imagining a World of Racial Inclusion - January 2019 Equity Alliance Roundtable 

The Equity Alliance of the North Coast is excited to continue our public Racial Equity Roundtables with our next offering January 3, conversations about "Imagining a World of Racial Inclusion". As we begin the New Year, please join us on a journey of historical exploration and re-imagining as together we feed our souls with new possibilities for the coming year. The Racial Inclusion Roundtable will focus on learning about and creating a world that values everyone's humanity and celebrates our differences. Racial inclusion actively works to disrupt dominant ways of thinking, which have historically deprived people of color of their distinctive cultures and world views. As such, we will incorporate racial identity affinity groups into part of our discussion. During our time together, we will learn about existing (and historical) intentionally racially mixed communities; discuss whiteness and its pervasive manifestations in our society and communities; examine modern visions of forward-thinking societies; and together imagine a future of new possibilities for equitable racially mixed communities.

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 then either email your scholarship request to equitynorthcoast@hafoundation.org or let us know at the door. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. 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. Humboldt Area Foundation’s Community Center has a first floor power-assisted entrance and bathrooms that are ADA compliant. Please contact us for additional information on accessibility and accommodations.
