Event description

Description

Event Details: This is the first in a series of events gathered around the theme of Racial Justice. Attend one, or all- each is a stand-alone session, but most meaningful when experienced as a whole. The series includes 2 workshop/discussion sessions facilitated by a trained YWCA leader, and an optional book study for those who wish to go deeper into this important topic.

Building Relationships Across Culture on 4/8, with dinner starting at 5:30 and discussion 6:00-8:00: This workshop is designed to give participants concrete skills in learning to ask questions well, build relationships and understand key cultural differences in communication, work styles and community building. We will respond to questions like: “What if I say the wrong thing?” “How do we build mutual value?” and “How do I become more aware of my own culture?”

White Privilege on 4/22, with dinner starting at 5:30 and discussion 6:00-8:00: The word ‘privilege’ has become controversial. For some it empowers while for others it evokes guilt. What does it mean to have white privilege? How do you recognize it? How can one move past white guilt? This workshop will discuss the fundamentals of identity, power and privilege and, specifically, how society is set up to benefit those who are white.

Book Discussion on 4/15, discussion 7:00-8:00 (no dinner): "Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota" by Sun Yung Shin. Books provided upon registration.

Free childcare provided, but you must register in advance.

Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church is a welcoming community. Following the example of Christ, we welcome all persons of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, educational levels, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
