Talking About Race
Conversations About Race and Equity (CARE) presents a 3-hour facilitated workshop to help participants lay a foundation for talking about race, particularly with teens.
After an introductory talk, participants will be invited to think about their identity through experiential exercises discussing, for example, where they grew up, what they understand about their identity growing up, and what they understand about it now.
The format will invite people to talk with each other, respectfully, in order to come to an understanding of the experiences have shaped our identity and how we are treated by society. Resources will be offered to attendees, including parents, educators, and grandparents, to help begin talking about race in an authentic way.
The event is free for all to attend. There is an optional contribution level if you wish help cover the costs.We have also been generously supported by the City of Seattle Neighborhood Matching Fund. (Thanks!)
