Racism in America: What Is Mine to Do? A 1.5 Day Workshop

The answers to the question, "What Is Mine to Do?" lie in your story. Your personal, intimate story reveals what life has taught you about racism. Chart your narrative. Uncover beliefs, assumptions, and disappointed dreams. See where your story is pointing you today.

OUTCOMES
•    Discern what is 'Mine to Do' to move toward race reconciliation
•    Learn ways to start and stay in conversations on race
•    How to respond when racism appears

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
•    Design your personal timeline revealing when race mattered, positively and negatively, and its impact on your life
•    When have you honored - and dis-honored - your values when considering race
•    What is your relationship to race going forward

WHAT IS NOT COVERED
History lesson on racism. Debating current events. Convincing others of your point of view. Long presentations.

TOPICS WITH SOME SHARP EDGES
•    Discover biases and assumptions that serve you, and those that don't
•    How to manage shutting down, defensiveness, and certitude when talking about race (particularly for white participants)

HONORING CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING
•    All are welcome
•    Storytelling and witnessing generate empathy and conviction
