Anti-Racist Action Training: Session 1
Start Date: 2/17/2017Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 2/17/2017End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description
We are a coalition of student organizations concerned about instances of racism in our communities, especially in light of the recent executive actions taken against Muslim immigrants and the undocumented. We have been working diligently to heighten awareness of racism and racial injustice here in our own community. We believe this work is more important now than at any other point in our lifetimes.
We invite you, our friends, classmates, and colleagues, to join us for an anti-racism training. Led by attorneys who are students of racial justice themselves, you will learn concepts and skills for recognizing and interrupting instances of racism when you encounter them in your community.
Our goal is to bring people to the table, not to call anyone out or shame anyone. If you feel uncomfortable talking about race, this training is for you. If you have ever seen something in the community you thought was racist but didn't know what to do, this training is for you. If you are concerned about the safety of your diverse community in an increasingly agitated and hostile society, this training is for you. If you are skeptical about whether racism still exists, this training is definitely for you.
Because each session builds on the prior one, we are asking attendees to please commit to all three sessions, on February 17, March 15, and April 5. To accommodate people's busy schedules, the sessions will be held over the lunch hour, from 12:30 - 1:30, and food will be provided. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
To register, or for further inquiry, please e-mail willamette.acs@gmail.com or reach out to student organization leaders.
We hope to see many of you there!
