What is Racism? What is Anti-Racism?

Skyline Village Chicago & Forward Chicago Zoom Forum 

Monday, November 16, 2020
4:00-5:00 pm 

The forum is free. Register in advance here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0uc-mhpzgtEtWsmTfXELtLoI7V0_Mtu_aZ

Speakers: Dr. Sarah Dennis and Yvonnie DuBose 
DuBose and Dennis are anti-racist/anti-bias co-founders of New Roots. They are also trained and certified facilitators of Racial Healing Circles by the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) initiative of the Woods’ Fund. This brief Zoom encounter will introduce concepts and tools to motivate anti-racist action. 

Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Women, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, etc. have been protesting for centuries, but our current times feel different. This is a national uprising where the USA has never gone before. It’s time to reimagine every facet of our community and create a space that allows all non-dominant folks to flourish. Just as this transformative revolution is not a sprint, but more of a marathon, this one-hour Zoom Forum cannot answer all our questions, but it will be an insightful introduction. 

“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” (James Baldwin). 

In lieu of payment, Yvonnie and Sarah are requesting that every attendee donate as much as they are able to the Hyde Park Suzuki Institute, a (black woman founded & run) non-profit organization.
