|Workshop:||What Stands Between Us? The Issue of Race in America and Our Community|
|Presented by:||Patrick Johnson|
|Time:||Wednesday, January 11 9:00 am|
|Max number of participants:||25|
This is a discussion that will allow us to take deeper dive into the issues of race in America and more importantly, in our community. The purpose of this workshop is to raise our awareness about the impact racism has in our lives - whether we realize it or not. The presenter will create an atmosphere that will allow all participants to express their experiences, concerns, questions and solutions for a healthier workplace, neighborhoods and community. This workshop will afford the participants to have an authentic conversation, one that will be enriching and insightful. The facilitator will encourage questions around the issue of race that often people don't want to ask in general settings. One of the primary purposes of this institute is to heighten our awareness as to how present institutional racism is even when we may not notice it. Please join us for what is sure to be a thought provoking session.
