Interrupting Racism: An Interactive Workshop
Saturday, October 5, 12 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Featuring award-winning playwright, author, and activist Carolyn Gage
We are all so good at thinking of the perfect thing we should have said... a day later. But can we prepare ourselves so that we won’t be caught off-guard by that racist joke, that ignorant observation, that insensitive comment?
This is a hands-on workshop to give participants the tools to interrupt racism as it happens. We will learn a simple series of steps, and then we will rehearse them in role-playing situations! A lively, informative, and practical workshop for interrupting racism. The workshop will take place in Somerville. Registration is required. Please see our Registration page to register for the workshop.
