About this Event
Topic: Systemic Racism, Bias, Prejudice
Speakers/Conversation Facilitators: Tiffani Burns & Kristin Salat from Moral Conduct Podcast
In light of the recent shootings of black men and women by police officers and the protests that have followed, it is more important than ever to engage in the discussion of racial injustice in our society. This is not a new issue, but some of us have the privilege of finally waking up to the reality that our black and brown neighbors, coworkers, family and friends are all too familiar with. Our systems and structures were not designed for the benefit of people of color. And in many cases, they have been designed to segregate, oppress, and imprison. It’s time we talked about it.
Tiffani and Kristin have been having conversations about race for almost 4 years, and now we are inviting YOU into the conversation. It can be overwhelming or exhausting to talk about race, especially if you’re just now engaging in the discussion. We are here with you and we’ll help navigate this uncomfortable conversation together.
We’ll discuss what systemic racism is, some of the barriers to talking about race, and address any questions you may have (anonymously, if you prefer).
What is the Conscious Living Community?
We are an Indy-based community dedicated to taking individual and collective action toward a more just and sustainable world. We typically meet each month on the 2nd Thursday at 6:30pm. Each month we cover a different topic – all related to sustainable and ethical living. Past topics have included ethical fashion, carbon footprints and zero waste. Invite all your crunchy friends. 🌳
