May Racial Equity Roundtable

Have you wondered how much of your perceptions and current behavior are conditioned by the past? The Equity Alliance of the North Coast is pleased to invite you to our next series of public Racial Equity Roundtables - Colonization*, the US, and the North Coast: A 2-Part Introduction to Colonization & Decolonization** Our May and June Roundtables will begin to explore the concept of colonization* — a practice of domination and political, social and economic arrangements that keep indigenous peoples and other marginalized groups in a state of perpetual structural disadvantage. In May, we will use video clips to provide examples of colonialism in the US, then engage in small group discussion to make connections between past policies and current inequities. In race-based affinity groups, we will explore the legacies of colonialism in our personal lives and communities. Coming back together, we will consider and discuss the links between race and colonialism. We will end with a hopeful nod toward the concept of decolonization. Facilitated by Aristea Saulsbury and Melissa Meiris. Child care provided by the Equity Alliance. Please see event link for more information and to register.
