Goodbye summer! Hello fall!
Kim and I have been making plans for our upcoming class season. And we’re glad you’re a part of it!
While we had hoped to have an in-person social, the Delta variant has made that impossible for now. Ugh.
We’ll be Zoom gathering again beginning Monday, September 13 from 7-8pm PST. Here’s the first thing we’ll be doing:
Welcome back. Where have we been, where are we going?
We’ve missed you! As we gather again on this journey to educate ourselves, we’ll take some time to reflect on what we’ve learned and where we’ll be heading. What have been your favorite sessions? What has blown your mind? How have you changed because of this class? What can we be doing? What will we be talking about this fall and winter?
Here’s a head’s up for what’s in store for the rest of September:
Being a Racial Ally - Lori Murphy
As we commit more and more to challenging the system of racism and its effects on others and ourselves, we likely will come across the idea of becoming and being a racial ally. This session's topic is based on the work of Anneliese Singh, PhD and LPC.
Raise Your Race Consciousness - Lori Murphy
Race-consciousness means that we are aware of how racism works as a system. We'll discuss how we can do things that help us claim an antiracist identity and expand our knowledge about our own race and the race of others. This session's topic is based on the work of Anneliese Singh, PhD and LPC.
Lori Murphy Cole had the joyous career of working in education at Chemeketa Community College. Since her retirement, she's continued teaching and working with a variety of communities on equity issues. She has been class participant over the past year.
And there’s more. We look forward to being together again and sharing with you. Let us know if you have any questions. We’ll send out Zoom info in the next email. See you soon!
