White Supremacy Teach-ins are Back!
Last Spring we learned to recognize the characteristics of white supremacy culture and how it affects the everyday rights and privileges of our fellow humans of color.
This fall we will explore how we can deliberately reshape our actions and attitudes to help dismantle this rigged system.
On August 26 we will discuss practical steps we can take in our lives to develop relationships and build trust.
On September 23 local activist Kenneth Bonner will offer a workshop re: engaging communities in changing the face of social justice.
And on October 28 we will wrap up our series and commit to action.
Times: 12:45-2:30 p.m. (Childcare available for children under 12.)
Location: Holston Valley UU Church; 136 Bob Jobe Rd.; Gray, TN
“It’s not about whether an individual person considers themselves a white supremacist. It’s about how we’re all influenced by the everyday messages we receive in our culture, by decisions that we make without even really thinking about it.”
- Sofia Betancourt, UUA Interim Co- President
