Dismantling Racism: The Relevance to Prevention
Thursday, October 26, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Talking about sexual abuse and violence may seem easy compared to talking about race, power and privilege. Yet facing this discomfort is necessary to understand how the biases we all have can get in the way of positive use of the privileges and power we have along with our ability to build authentic relationships. Join us for this unique and thought– provoking discussion.
