Transformative Conversations about Race

  • 9:15 AM - 10:45 AM
  • Common Room (Behind Multipurpose room in Groome Building)

Held in the Light for Transformative Conversations about Race

On Sunday, January 12, at 9:15 a.m., we are invited to participate in transformative conversations about race. (Please note the early start time.) The location is in the "common area classroom" in the Groome Building (enter the building via the patio & breezeway, go across the cafeteria to the left side of the stage, then pass through the stairwell into the classroom area).  This room is wheelchair accessible. 

Summary: While we wish to be more inclusive and more sensitive to the social construct of race (and other differences) at BFM, it is often uncomfortable to have honest explorations of the topic for all kinds of reasons. The BFM Diversity Change Group wishes to create a safe space to have uncomfortable conversations about our white-dominant culture, as white-majority Quakers.  Please join us to learn more about how the system of white dominance works and how to get used to difficult conversations that are needed to move forward and become more anti-racist as individuals and as a community.

If you'd like child care through Grade 6 while attending, please use the "Contact Us" form or email Marion H. (see Directory) 10 days in advance.
