LWVMA DEI Peer Discussion Group

Please join the LWVMA DEI Peer Discussion Group’s next quarterly meeting, which will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2022, 10-11:30 AM.  Newcomers are always welcome and please be sure to register at the zoom link here.  Here is the  proposed agenda.  
For our Conversation Starter this time, we imagine many of you are already familiar with the concept of “White Supremacy Culture.”  It’s been around for a while and is often misunderstood.  Instead of being a threat or a guilt inducer, it is really a path to liberation for us all.  The lessons it has to teach us do not just apply to the racial situation in our world but to any of the many kinds of structural oppression that are part of our current culture.  For this meeting we’d like folks to read this short piece, about antidotes to “White Supremacy Culture” from the July 15th Community Change, Inc. Newsletter, and consider participating in some reflection on it with your DEI Peer Group colleagues on 8/20/22.
Looking forward to another meaningful discussion,
Patty Shepard and Amy Cooper
