Events & Opportunities to Engage


November Racial Equity Roundtable "Race at the Holiday Table"

Join us for conversations about "Race at the Holiday Table: Strategies for Passing the Cranberries While Interrupting Racism". What do you say when along with abundant food and bonding, a racist joke or comment is offered as a pungent side dish at the holiday table?  At the November Roundtable let’s practice “calling in” loved ones (and their guests) as we engage with each other in what to do and say when you’re facing a choice between the good feelings of family acceptance and the values of racial equity you want to encourage.  Our goal is to refine tools for changing hearts and minds, while building our confidence to interrupt harmful language that often goes unquestioned at holiday gatherings. Using videos and discussion we will explore misinformation around the origins of some of our holidays and how to have these conversations without blaming, shaming, or guilt. Facilitated by Melissa Meiris and Ron White.
