January Racial Justice Brunch

January 21, 2018, 12:30pm - January 21, 2018, 2:30pm

Come build relationships with other people who are working for racial justice. At this month's SURJ Brunch, Susan Naimark will lead a short presentation and discussion exploring implicit bias: what it is, how it develops and shows up in our actions, and ways to reduce these hidden biases that we are unaware we even have. You may have met Susan at several of our recent brunches. She is the author of The Education of a White Parent: Wrestling with Race and Opportunity in the Boston Public Schools. She is a founder of the Boston Parent Organizing Network and served for eight years on the City of Boston's School Board. She also is an inspired marathon runner. It's a potluck so bring food to share if you can. Coffee, tea, and juice will be provided. Please RSVP to amelie.ratliff@gmail.com if you're coming - we do not monitor RSVPs on Facebook.
