Anti-racism Discussion Group in the Suburbs

Anti-racism in the ‘Burbs

First meeting: Sunday 11/15, 2-4 p.m.
Location: Medfield, MA  
(talk to me, or join for location details -DG)

"A window of opportunity won't open itself." -Dave Weinbaum

Even those of us living in the suburbs care about, and have a role to play in, the anti-racism movement. From frustration, fear, and anger to empathy, passion, and solidarity, this work can bring up a lot for everyone. Our supportive group discussions can help us get some clarity, perspective, and encouragement through the process. We will focus on a different topic each meeting, sometimes including films and discussions about printed materials …encouraging member feedback to help guide future topics.

The mission of this group discussion series is to promote awareness of inequality, to build community, and to develop skills that address dismantling racism and oppression within a diverse, compassionate, and culturally sensitive environment.

All are welcome: People of Color, Whites…people new to this topic and those involved and active for many years. Come with questions and/or experience to share with others wanting to learn more.

Hosted by Deb and Carlin, members of Boston Knapsack Anti-Racism Group. If interested, please join this group and RSVP on our event page: (with no further obligations). Feel free to post questions there too.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Note: 15 folks came to this meeting. We discussed a page from Waking Up White about dominate white culture behavior...and what can be more helpful behaviors when working on racial healing.
