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.
