Let’s Talk @ Lunch at Curt’s Cafe
Dec 11 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Let's Talk at Lunch logoAs we learn to talk THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and deepen our understanding by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants gather, have a cup of coffee or eat lunch, and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. All are welcome!

Microaggressions: Intent vs. Impact Workshop
Jan 27 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

What are microaggressions? Can they hurt if they weren’t intended in a hurtful way? How do they impact our work environment? What are helpful responses when I see, commit, or have someone use one on me?

Participants in our Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism.  Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.
