Building an Anti-Racist Environmental Movement – Workshop Series
September 24 - October 8, 2020, 6p.m. – 8p.m.
In response to the national discussion on racism in America, Great Waters Group is hosting this three-part Zoom series. The workshop will begin Thursday, September 24th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and continue for three weeks at the same time on October 1st and October 8th. Registrants are asked to commit to all three sessions, if possible.
This is an intensive three-week series of 2-hour Anti-Racism workshops that grew, in part, out of last October’s “On The Table” discussion on Environmental Justice and Equity. Last fall, in the discussion session, there was clear agreement that the environmental movement cannot continue to be splintered by the same racial divisions that separate Milwaukee into hyper-segregated communities.This workshop series is intended to address the problems and give us tools to break patterns and begin systemic change.
Our facilitator, August Ball, a recognized professional in anti-bias training, will facilitate all three weeks of the series. The class will be limited in size, so sign up early. There is no cost to attend, but participants will be invited to donate to offset the expense.
When you register, you will receive an email confirmation shortly after submitting. A Zoom link will be sent to you about a week before the event with a reminder the day before.
The program is funded in part by a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Mosaic and the Great Waters Group of the Sierra Club.
