Workshop: Having Difficult Conversations About Race

RaceSunday, April 15
5:00pm-9:00pm (includes dinner)

With Latisha Jones, Facilitator

Please plan to attend an innovative workshop on “Having Difficult Conversations About Race” at Temple Emanuel, on April 15, 2018, from 5p to 9p in HaMakom.  Facilitator Latisha Jones, a theater educator with a specialty in diversity training and multicultural education, will lead our workshop on developing the communication skills necessary to talk about race; skills that are necessary to take the first steps in becoming compassionate and effective allies in the struggle for racial equity.

Latisha’s highly interactive workshop uses games, visual arts, theatre and conversation. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to: define stereotype, prejudice and discrimination; describe the differences between internal, group, interpersonal, intergroup and systemic oppression; develop skills in active listening, allyship, and self-care; and develop skills to engage in difficult discussions.

PLEASE NOTE: Given the interactive nature of the workshop, attendance is limited to 30.  To make a reservation, please contact the Temple Office at 301-942-2000 or rsvp@templeemanuelmd.org.
COST:  $10.00 per person, includes dinner

This workshop is sponsored by the Community Social Action Council (CSAC) and is generously supported by the Nanette Dembitz Berman Judaism and Social Issues Fund.
