Film & Discussion Series: Race and Class and their Intersections

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the next event in this ongoing film and discussion series that may educate you, touch your heart, and inspire you to action to help dismantle racism.

Class and race in the United States are clearly related, but what is the relationship? How do we address efforts to dismiss one or the other? What is the role of dog-whistle politics? Using three short impactful videos and facilitated discussion, we will explore at least four questions:
  1. How is wealth distributed among the wealthiest, the poorest and those of us in-between?
  2. What is the racial wealth gap?
  3. How are racism and classism connected?
  4. What can we do about them?

After the film and discussion, work will continue in small groups on the local action projects already underway:
  • Climate Change-Racism Connections
  • Schools Initiative
  • Legislative Initiative
  • Support for individual actions and conversations

Free & open to the public.

Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.
