Confronting Systemic Racism – 5-Week Course

Date: Classes begin Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Location: Lawrence CommunityWorks – 168 Newbury St., Lawrence, MA

Hosted By: SURJ Merrimack Valley and Anti-Racism Collaborative

Cost: Tuition for the course is $70 per person. Sliding scale need-based scholarships are available. Purchase tickets HERE. (After purchasing, please register yourself HERE.)

This course will focus on how to bridge a deep understanding of personal and structural racism into commitments and a solid plan to move forward! If you are looking to understand your role in the dynamics of systemic racism better and are interested in finding the next step in your journey of taking a stance for racial justice beyond talking about racism and social oppression – this course is a great way to build community and take action.

Please join us for a powerful 5-week course. All are welcome but please note the course takes an explicit view that transforming both ourselves and our society into a racially just place implicates a responsibility in white and privileged folks to engage in this work more robustly.

The course sessions take place at Lawrence CommunityWorks from 6:30 – 8:30 pm on the following Tuesdays, June 13th, 20th, 27th, July 11, and 18th.

Tuition is $70 per person. Sliding-scale need-based scholarships are available upon request.
