This Sunday in BJF, we will meet with West Raleigh Presbyterian Church at 2:30 for a workshop, "It's Not [Just] Personal: The Invention of Whiteness and Racism.” Do you want to learn more about the ways in which racism operates in our society today and how we can work against it? In this workshop facilitated by Triangle Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), we will learn about how people in power have used racism to divide and conquer us; the power of multiracial coalitions; and the role each of us can play in the current movement against racism.
