When? Sunday, March 10 from 1-3 pm.
Full details here.
Over the past several months more than 50 people in our community just like you have been involved in a discussion of the book, White Fragility: Why it’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism, by Robin J. DiAngelo. Almost every day we hear about or see some public figure involved in racist conduct. In our discussions we have been learning that the day-to-day experience of people of color here in our community is made difficult by micro-aggressions and white privilege.
We care about racism and white supremacy.
What can we do?
Join the discussion. Bring a friend.

Civic reflection is a discussion model that uses readings, images and video to engage people in productive conversation about issues that impact their communities and work, as well as build bridges of understanding in the midst of differences. This training gave citizens of Valpo the tools to facilitate difficult dialogue in a variety of contexts.
This took place on April 1st at 6:30PM. This was a FREE program, though donations are welcome to fund future programs like it.
This program is made possible by a partnership with Valparaiso Unversity’s Institute for Leadership & Service Civic Reflection Initiative.
