Communicating Effectively about Racism

A Workshop in Non-Violent Conversation/Action

with Rev. Willard Bass of the Institute for Dismantling Racism, and Rev. Christy Clore 


In this workshop we willaddress "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 and 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.

Lead Us Not Into Gentrification: Development, Displacement, & The Tale of Two Winston-Salem’s @ The SALTBOX

Join us Feb 23rd at 3:30pm at The SALTBOX for Terrance Hawkins and:

"Lead Us Not Into Gentrification: Development, Displacement, & The Tale of Two Winston-Salem’s"

Winston-Salem is experiencing a renewal that is skipping over the least of these. As we boast of being one of the best U.S. cities for economically mobile people to relocate to, poverty remains nearly intractable for those born into it here.
Does this reality mean that gentrification is on the horizon? If so, can The Church be a force that pushes against its winds of displacement? What role can The Church play in redressing & healing the historic wounds of racial injustice & economic dispossession? How can we advocate for & create renewal efforts that center the most vulnerable sections of our city? Can our city truly be a place of "peace" as long as there are "two Winston-Salems"?
This FREE training will explore these questions & more!

Be the Change: Beyond the Bricks & Educational Equity in Forsyth County

Be the Change: Beyond the Bricks & Educational Equity in Forsyth County

  • Forsyth Tech, Strickland Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Be The Change: Beyond the Bricks & Educational Equity in Forsyth County

This February's installment of Be The Change is focused on a key educational issue in the US that is playing out here in Forsyth County: the achievement gap for males of color. The agenda for this quarterly community convening on education is full, with the achievement gap and educational equity front and center. We'll feature a screening of the documentary film Beyond the Bricks, facilitated participant breakout sessions, and a moderated panel discussion among the Superintendent and Board Chair of Winston-Salem / Forsyth County Schools, as well as the President and CEO of YMCA of Northwest North Carolina. These conversations will explore the achievement gap as a national trend and examine the perspectives and policies shaping our community's outcomes and day-to-day life for students in Forsyth County. The full event agenda is included below.

"We'll kick off the event with a data walk and presentation on our community's core measures in education as well as recently-reported figures around educational equity in Forsyth County. The fact of the matter is there are significant disparities across nearly all of these measures based on the race / ethnicity and / or the socioeconomic status of a given student. These gaps among subgroups of students are alarming and must be addressed. By bringing the community together around this issue, and by examining specific, concrete policies and dynamics affecting the situation, we can begin to chart a path toward progress, together," said The Forsyth Promise Partnership Director, Wendy Poteat.

Event Details


When: Thursday, February 28 from 5:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Where: Forsyth Technical Community College, 2100 Silas Creek Parkway, Robert L. Strickland Center (formerly the Oak Grove Center), Winston-Salem, NC 27103

The Forsyth Promise

The Forsyth Promise is a coalition of community institutions, organizations, and grassroots leaders who come together to identify and collaborate on community-wide priorities to improve Forsyth County's core measures in education. Guided by the core values of educational equity, inclusive stakeholder engagement, and data-driven decision making, the Promise is focused on reducing or eliminating racial / ethnic, socioeconomic, and other disparities among students. The Promise's core educational measures include: early childhood reading, third grade reading, eighth grade math, ACT proficiency, high school graduation, college enrollment, and post-secondary completion.

Wendy Poteat continued, "Be The Change is our quarterly opportunity to meet as a broader coalition of community advocates for education, to go deep on key issues affecting our local systems of education, to report out on the work of the Promise, and to provide a channel for community advocates of all ages, races, and backgrounds to plug into the work. The spirit of this event, and our work in general, is open and collaborative. The Promise is about coming out of bunkers and building bridges so that we can come together, collaborate, and improve the quality of the educaiton received by all young people in Forsyth County."

Beyond the Bricks

Beyond the Bricks is a documentary created with the goal of promoting solutions for one of America’s critical problems in education: the consistently low academic performance of African‐American boys in school. Though the film focuses primarily on students and schools in Newark, NJ, the issues addressed there extend to urban enclaves throughout the nation. Beyond the dismal statistics are the real stories of children fighting to build better futures for themselves. Through two students’ personal stories, the film looks critically at the circumstances that are plaguing African‐American communities overall, and offers up examples of people who are successfully combating these challenges. BEYOND THE BRICKS promotes hope and the idea that with people at every level working diligently on this issue, there can be real solutions to the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that have for so long plagued African‐American boys and their education.

"Lead Us Not Into Gentrification: Development, Displacement, & The Tale of Two Winston-Salem’s"

Winston-Salem is experiencing a renewal that is skipping over the least of these. As we boast of being one of the best U.S. cities for economically mobile people to relocate to, poverty remains nearly intractable for those born into it here.
Does this reality mean that gentrification is on the horizon? If so, can people of good conscious-both vulnerable & privileged- be a force that pushes against its winds of displacement? What role can the broader community play in redressing & healing the historic wounds of racial injustice & economic dispossession? How can we advocate for & create renewal efforts that center the most vulnerable sections of our city? Can our city truly be a place of "peace" as long as there are "two Winston-Salems"?
This FREE training will explore these questions & more!
