Most of us want to be generous, especially when we become aware of the needs of other people. At our best, we humans draw the circle wider to include everyone. We support family, friends, neighbors, and strangers in myriad ways. But how do we decide what those ways are and how much to give? What criteria to we apply? How do we measure generosity? Together we explore these questions.

Sunday, November 19, 2017 -

Please RSVP to Carol at clvand@nyc.rr.com.

Are you dreading the conversation around the table during the holidays because family members or friends are racist? Or their casual acceptance of white privilege? Don’t avoid talking about race, racism, and current events — whether the topic is Charlottesville, Colin Kaepernick, or something else. Instead, learn to respectfully hold your ground while listening, asking questions, and presenting alternate ways of looking at racism.

This workshop is designed to increase participants’ ability to engage in conversations about race and racism. The three-hour session is taught by the New York City chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), part of a national network organizing white people for racial justice. It is sponsored by NYSEC’s own Ethical Action Committee, as part of its ongoing program of events and actions devoted to carrying out the AEU Resolution of Repairing the Harm of Racism.

We will identify opportunities for “calling in” versus “callingout,” define white fragility and discuss how to navigate it and learn tactics to address common microaggressions and racist statements.

Participants should leave the workshop with tools for calling more white people into the movement for racial justice.

About SURJ NYC: Through demonstrations, political organizing, education, and other actions, SURJ NYC is committed to moving white people into action for racial justice while taking direction from and supporting organizations and coalitions led by people of color.
