Columbus Metropolitan Library - Franklinton Branch
1061 West Town Street, Columbus, Ohio 43222
Many of us are faced with difficult conversations with people we care about, work with, worship with, or interact with in our community. How do we take a stand for racial justice, and what should that stand look like? Representatives from SURJ, Showing Up For Racial Justice, will be hosting an interactive workshop that explores strategies of «calling in» to bring as many white people in to the struggle for racial justice. This will be an opportunity to review past dialogues related to race and to think forward to new ways of engaging these dialogues.

This is an «intermediate» level conversation, assuming some past experience with learning about racism and racial justice. All are welcome.

Free parking, no childcare planned (near buslines)

SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals organizing White people for racial justice.
