The Language of Anti-Racism 101: If you have an interest in anti-racism, then this session is for you, whether you have been doing anti-racism work for a while (all your life) or are new to this conversation and this work. Our goal is to explore the broadly used definitions of key terms, such as oppression and privilege, so that everyone can have informed and productive conversations about how to dismantle hierarchies of human value.
Thursday, 5-7 p.m., Jan. 21
