Event description

Description

Great Schools Partnership (GSP) is hosting our second Dessert and Discussion event.

Local educators are invited to join us for a viewing of episode 1 of RACE – The Power of an Illusion, a three-part PBS documentary about race, privilege, policy, and justice. Episode 1: The Difference Between Us, challenges what we have taught, learned, and practised in terms of how people are classified and bundled into distinct biological groups.

We hope this discussion series will provide a safe and supportive space for educators to delve into discussions about race, racism, and culture. Additionally, we hope that these discussions will lead to change in the lives of the educators who attend as well as the lives of the students they serve.

The event is free and open to anyone who is interested, even if you didn’t attend a previous event, but spaces are limited. Please register in advance.

4:00 p.m. Registration
4:15 p.m. Screening
5:15 p.m. Discussion
5:45 p.m. Adjourn
