Learning to become more anti-racist involves many things.  In our racial justice book group we learn from reading books by and about oppressed people as well as speaking about our experiences of racism, otherness, intersectionality, or awareness of how our society reproduces systemic oppression.  We are a diverse group and all are welcome.

The Racial Justice Book Group meets at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture on the last Monday night of the month from 6;00 – 8;00 pm.
