Let's Get Uncomfortable Talking About Racism

a moderated fireside chat featuring

Sara Blanchard & Misasha Suzuki Graham

nationally recognized podcasters and the authors of Dear White Women

Let's take an hour for an honest look at why anti-racism matters and what we can each do differently to make change in our communities. Topics to be addressed include: 

  • Finding - and leaning into - your "why" when it comes to intentionally being anti-racist
  • How race plays into everyone's identities - but it's not just about race when it comes to intersectional identities
  • Practical steps that we can take in our own spheres of influence to make actual change in our communities

Optional: Read the authors' book Dear White Women beforehand. You can find out how to order the book here: https://www.dearwhitewomen.com/book

**BOOK GIVEAWAY: As an incentive to sign up & a commitment to attend the chat, APABA, CWBA, and CACEN are giving out 40 books to the first 40 individuals who register for this program! We will send you an email with information as to where you can pick up the book.
