Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward
The Dock C. Bracy Center offers an innovative learning series designed to help participants eradicate racism – within themselves, their families, communities, and organizations. Currently delivered via Zoom, “Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward” is a series of four learning sessions combining film/video, presentation, and small group discussion. The series provides a safe learning environment for self-reflection, dialogue, learning and action planning. Through exploring and re-aligning emotional and cognitive responses to racial issues, participants find the personal power to help dismantle racism, effectively and compassionately. The series covers the roots, history and structures of racism; how white privilege is constructed, supported and internalized; and how the mythology of white supremacy harms people of all races. The final session provides coaching support to participants who have committed to eradicating racism in many different arenas.
Finding Your Voice
The Center believes that people who are committed to taking action to eradicate racism in their community need focused on-going support. The Finding Your Voice Program provides that support to every individual who signs the “Anti-Racism Pro-Human Reconciliation Pledge”. The Center’s support is focused on aiding participants, through education, to deliver on their pledge. “We Got Your Back” you can say.
Reading for Understanding
As a learning organization, the Center seeks to provide opportunities to promote understanding and empathy. The book discussion provides participants with a shared experience and an opportunity to engage with others.
The Center’s Reading for Understanding monthly book discussions are free and have two requirements: Read the book and make time for the discussion.
