Relating to People With Different Experiences of Life
Jul 10 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Relating to People With Different Experiences of Life @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture | New York | United States

Want to enlarge your own and others’ capacity to talk openly and honestly about difficult issues related to race and other dimensions that are used in our larger culture to exclude, “other,” and discriminate? Interested in building skills and opportunities for developing authentic relationships across differences? Through sharing our personal stories in small groups, pairs and sometimes in the larger circle, we’ll continue our summer conversations about race, racism and racial justice.

ALL ARE WELCOME!!!!
Where do you go to build your advocacy strength?  To learn some skills, have an opportunity to do even some small things to make the world better, to be with others? To plan how to get involved in actions?

Now there’s a new answer: join us every other Wednesday at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture for an evening of action. Come anytime between 6-9 and stay for as long as you can!. We’ll have projects to do each week — write a letter or email, make a sign, call someone who represents you, etc. — and also share stories of what we’ve each done and want to do.  We might have an article to read or a short video playing to learn more about an issue.

Feel free to bring your children. We will have no childcare but kids are welcome.

Any voluntary donations are split between sustaining the costs of using the space, and contributing to a different organization each week.

Colloquy: Home: A Personal Space; with Sarah Zahnstecher and Karen Guccione @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Home is a big word. We can think of it in both rational and imaginative ways. In this colloquy we’ll explore both. (Colloquy provides opportunities for each of us to reflect on our own lives in relationship to the topic and listen and learn from one another, within the format of a sharing circle.)
