Anti-Racism: Doing the Work!
You are invited to join Pittsburgh Freethought Community/First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh Joint Workshops on understanding racism and white privilege. We have scheduled six sessions that will include lecture, discussion, and multi-media presentations along with recommended readings. While not exclusive, the purpose of this series is to develop the understanding and ability of White people to do the work of dismantling racism. We ask that participants commit to reading the assigned material. We strongly encourage participants to attend all sessions, however each session covers a separate topic and will be open to all.
All sessions will take place in the Undercroft Gallery at First Unitarian Church, 605 Morewood Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15213
Session #1 - Understanding Racism and White Privilege - January 26, 2020, 1 to 3 PM
Racism is the combination of bias against Black people with the use of power. Although we understand race to be a social construct without any rational basis, racism is a systemic, pervasive, destructive force throughout our society.
A detailed description of each session along with assigned readings will be distributed to each person who registers for the workshop.
