Dialogue on Racism

Please stay tuned for more details on the next date!

 

The All Souls Racism Dialogue Group that met over the summer and discussed White Fragility, has concluded the book study and is now moving to monthly meetings focused on individual and community action.  The group is considering viewing a film together, as well as hearing from speakers who are involved in direct action on this topic.  Please stay tuned for more details.
