EVENT DETAILS

Do you struggle as a White person to respond in social or work situations
when someone questions the reality of racism or fails to advance anti-racist work? 

Do you feel confident speaking to racism skeptics in a way that is effective and not off-putting
so that they stop listening?


Many White people are at a loss and need tangible tools and skills to participate in healthy, productive, and effective dialogue with racism skeptics. This workshop will offer up some helpful information and tools for the White Ally Toolkit.

It might surprise people to learn that there is increasing scientific evidence that shows that empathy-based dialogues are the way to go if you want to have a chance to change adults' minds. According to this research, the best way to foster debiasing is to first listen empathetically to skeptics so they feel heard, and after that, raise experiences and facts that invite them to a broader and more nuanced perspective.

This workshop was developed by and is facilitated by Dr. David Campt, aka "The Dialogue Guy." Dr. Campt is nationally renowned in the areas of community engagement, conflict resolution, inclusion, and equity. His clients have included large corporations, the White House, the US Military, and nonprofits. You can learn more about him and this work at www.whiteallytoolkit.com.

Come and participate in this vital conversation!  Tickets are $20 per person and may be purchased online through February 13, or you may pay at the door.

FOOD
You are welcome to bring food for yourself. Beverages, plates, forks, etc. will be provided free of charge. For an additional $10 per person, the church will provide a light supper (sandwiches, salads, desserts, drinks), including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Other dietary needs will be accommodated on request.


This event is sponsored by the UUCSS Racial Justice Task Force. For more information, contact JusticeTaskForce@uucss.org.
