Confronting Racism Discussion Group

A group committed to confronting racism in ourselves, our community, and our world by listening to BIPOC voices in anti-racism literature, films, podcasts, etc., with the ultimate goal of empowering Black, Indigenous and people of colour.
 
WHO: A small group of 12 people (particularly white folks and those who have not experienced being part of a minority group) who have a desire to work towards racial justice, starting by confronting their own biases through education. This group and all of its content will be in english and is for those 18 years and older.
 
WHAT: Similar to a book club, but not limited to books. A group invested in educating ourselves through reading from Black authors, journalists, etc., and coming together as a group to have the difficult discussions that can often arise with this type of work. The first book will be “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism”, written by Robin DiAngelo. Monthly content going forward will be decided by the group; ranging from anti-racism books, biographies, articles, films, documentaries, podcasts, etc.
 
WHERE: Zoom meetings until regulations allow meetings of larger groups.
 
WHEN: The first Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8pm. The first meeting is on Tuesday, October 6th.
 
COST: Becoming a member at the West-Island Black Community Association ($20 for students/seniors, $30 for adults) and providing your own copy of the book for the month. If you are unable to make this financial contribution but are interested in the group, please still apply.
 
A huge shout out to Rachael Seatvet for approaching WIBCA with this vision…. what an amazing ally ✊🏽
