Conversations on Racial Equality
Over a year ago, several members of the Oneness community came together to begin discussions on the topic of racism. We tackled a formidable task and gained new insights along the way. Now we continue the work.
Join us for monthly “Conversations on Racial Equality” at Oneness Hall beginning Saturday, September 22 from 3 to 5 pm. As a framework for our talks, we will discuss the book, “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin Diangelo. Through courageous conversations, we can gain awareness, share our personal experiences, and learn to hold the experiences of others in the unity of the human condition.
Recent events like those in Charlottesville and the continued oppression and violence experienced by people of color tell us that elements of our country’s storied history of racism remain. To correct the collective consciousness, dismantling racist systems is paramount. We can do that by shining a light directly on the problem.
If you are interested in participating, please RSVP by September 19. To RSVP please reply to this email with your name and phone number. Please read the foreward, introduction and the first three chapters of the book prior to the meeting.
We hope you can and will join us in this endeavor.
In light and love,
The Conversations on Racial Equality (CORE) Leadership Team:
