Anti-Racism Study Dialogue Circles
In light of the murder of George Floyd and countless police killings of Black and Brown people, the world is reassessing the role of both police and society at large in addressing system-wide and structural racism. We wish to look at what this moment is about, how it connects to America’s history of systemic racism, and the forces that continue to sustain racism in Minnesota and the nation.
With the support of Professor Joe R. Feagin of Texas A&M University, along with Minnesota antiracist activists and scholars, we will host four 90-minute conversations over the summer. We will be on Zoom with a short breakout session after each conversation.
There is no fee for these workshops, but your tax-deductible donation will allow us to continue to offer ASDIC’s unique antiracism trainings in our community and beyond. Suggested donation in support of this programming is $5 per session. Donate here.
