As we prepare to march together on January 20th, it's important to understand how our own blindspots and privilege can get in the way of working in true solidarity. Sometimes we need to see how even our well-intentioned actions may have a negative impact on those with experiences different from our own.
Join us for an impactful training that will help you learn about yourself, your biases and advantages, and the diversity of our community. We'll examine how our gender identity, race and sexuality intersect to impact our experiences and perspective, and discuss how to make the upcoming march more inclusive.
This event is FREE, and all are welcome to attend.
