Join us for our fourth round of Elements of Justice dialogues!

Inspired by the potential of transformation each of us carries, Elements of Justice dialogue are meant to bring people together to share, listen, reflect and witness with each other.

In this  round of dialogues, we will explore the idea of Action and find ways to take action for Racial Justice in our families, workplaces, and communities. We will share how we have been sustaining our commitment for Racial Justice, and how community can help us maintain this work for the years ahead.

Elements of Justice dialogues will be offered both for people who want to have conversations in cross-racial groups and also for people who would benefit from talking in an affinity group with people of similar racial identities.

 

What is an Affinity Group?

Affinity groups are spaces where all of us can share in honest ways that don’t force Black, Indigenous or other People of Color to carry the responsibility for racial justice dialogues. Affinity group dialogue will be led by a facilitator who shares that same racial identity.

 

Not sure which dialogue to sign up for?

  • Cross-Racial Dialogue will be held between people of different racial identities and backgrounds.
  • Black/African American Affinity group is intended to be a dialogue between people who identify as and are biologically connected to others who are Black, African American, bi/multiracial with Black/African American heritage or ancestry.
  • Non-Black People of Color Affinity Group is intended to be a dialogue between people who identify as and are biologically connected to others who are Latina/o/x, Bi/Multiracial, Pacific Islander, Asian American, Native, Indigenous, Middle Eastern, or North African. The goal in grouping these various racial identities is to better understand how these groups can more strongly challenge Anti-Blackness and build more solidarity with Black people and each other.
  • White/European American Affinity group is for dialogue between people who identify as and are biologically connected to others who are White, European American, have heritage or ancestry from Europe, or are bi/multiracial with White/European American heritage or ancestry.

 

Capacity is limited and all dialogues will be held online.

All dialogues will be held online. Zoom links will be sent to registered participants.
