Irresistible Justice: Cultivating Joy as a Pathway to Equity - a Film & Dia...
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Shakti Butler to Central Oregon to honor the 2017 Season of Nonviolence.
Using clips from her groundbreaking film, Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, Dr. Shakti Butler will discuss the system of racialization in our society. She will offer an explanation of these systems that promotes a union between the head and heart. Dr. Butler teaches the head recognizes, analyzes and strategizes to overcome disparities, and the heart obliterates fear and connects us with others.
Through thoughtful dialogue with a focus on understanding how white privilege is manifested in many of our institutions, Dr. Butler will lead us on a path to begin to see and deconstruct racial identity. She will teach us that it is joy, rather than fear, that informs radical social change and moves our communities towards equity.
