Raising Awareness

In light of discussions we have had at this blog, I offer some ideas about creating better understanding.

KUOW has had a great series called Black in Seattle.  On Wednesday, Nov. 13, they are having an event, Black in Seattle: Continuing the Conversation at Washington Hall at 153 14th Avenue at 6 pm.   Free and open to the public. 

The group, School's Out Washington is offering two caucuses - one for white people and one for people of color on Tuesday, November 19th from 10 am to noon.  Lunch is provided. 

The two articles they recommend are:
White Caucus - “Nothing to add: A Challenge to White Silence in Racial Discussions”

People of Color - “Racial Microaggressions in Everyday Life

Space is limited.  Please RSVP to Doree Desberg via e-mail or at 206.336.6916.
Funding by the City of Seattle Office of Civil Rights, Race and Social Justice Initiative, and Structural Racism Technical Assistance Fund.  Space donated by Boys&Girls Club of King County/Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse and Teen Center at Rainier Vista.

This is offered as information to our readers.
