Real Talk: Addressing Racial Bias & Creating Transformative Work

Eric Butler, Talking Peace, and the Center for Understanding Conflict

This workshop will engage participants in a conversation about the dynamics of being in professional and work relationships with individuals of different races and the care and attention deserved in order to grow. When differences arise, the discussion often revolves around the “issue” at hand, ignoring the many layers and forces operating below the surface and from the outside. Each person in the conflict is driven by what is important to them on a deeper level and is impacted by familial, cultural and societal forces, yet these are seldom explicitly examined.

Dates: April 5 and 6
Time: 9 am-5 pm
Where: TBA
Fees: sliding scale

The Little Book of Racial Healing shares a hopeful and positive vision of a just and truthful society that seeks to heal from the racial wounds of the past. It offers tips for listening and building accountable relationships, and taking action to create the future we want to share. Restorative justice leader Howard Zehr calls it a “timely, much-needed and practical book.”
