Communicating Effectively About Racism

 

A Workshop in Non-Violent Conversation/Action

with Rev. Willard Bass of the

Institute for Dismantling Racism

 

In this workshop we will address "difficult conversations" about race.

Do you get tongue tied when a total stranger makes a disturbing remark in your presence?  Are you frustrated with your ability to communicate effectively when racism emerges in conversations with family members or co-workers?

 

We invite you to bring stories from your own experiences to share with the group.  Together we will work out a range of possible solutions.  There will be opportunity to role play, as well as to practice holding a respectful but firm space in response to such remarks.  What you learn here will also be useful for engaging in difficult political conversations and other realms of conflict.

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

6:30-8:00 pm

25.00 suggested donation to IDR

 

18 Springs Community Healing Center, 2424 Reynolda Rd., Winston-Salem

Natural Shocks

https---cdn.evbuc.com-images-43441052-14517807223-1-original.jpg.png

Natural Shocks is a new play by Lauren Gunderson, offered free on the anniversary of the Columbine shootings to raise money, energy and spirit for the continued struggle against violence. It is a tough and powerful play, read and embodied, by Melissa Jones an actress coming home to Winston-Salem from Brooklyn just for us. The combination of Lauren’s words and her voice promises something quite special.

Natural Shocks is a national movement inspired by the young leaders of Parkland Florida, with more than 80 theaters  from dozens of states staging the play on the same weekend. Lauren just won the American Theater Critics Association for best new play of year (The Book of Will) and for the second year in a row is America’s most produced playwright, living or dead. (www.naturalshocks.org)

 Both Jenny Marshall and DD Adams, candidates for Congress, have committed to bring comments after the play, which is worth coming for alone.

 There is a lot happening next weekend, but you will not want to miss this. The performance is free, but we hope you’d come in a generous and hopeful spirit. You can contribute directly through the Eventbrite registration site, or just bring money on Friday.

We’re expecting a good crowd, so are asking you to register online here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/natural-shocks-tickets-45078145948?utm_campaign=order_confirmation_email&utm_medium=email&ref=eemailordconf&utm_source=eb_email&utm_term=eventname
