Cracking the Codes the System of Racial Inequity
Saturday, November 17, 2018 1-3:30 p.m.

The subject and behaviors that characterize any form of oppression are set against established norms and standards of “rightness” within any society and are reinforced by institutional and economic power. There is no hierarchy to oppressions; all are terrible, destructive, painful and wasteful in terms of human capital. “Race”, “ethnicity”, “class”, “gender”, “homophobia”, “ableism”, etc., as examples of oppression, are not fixed and static in terms of their identity and presentation. And yet, even with the understanding that all forms of oppression intersect, racial disparities continue to be a complex and layered issue that many people deny and/or are afraid to confront. This film/dialogue program seeks to provide an organizing frame, or an approach, within an context to achieve or elicit a more useful exploration of race, racism and racialization. We offer a systemic approach as a frame for supporting exploration, 1 analysis and gathering wisdom in ways that are communal and collaborative.
We will gather beginning at 12:30 p.m. Program is from 1-3:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.  We do request that you RSVP to assure adequate seating.

For additional information and/or to RSVP contact Ceil Roeger, OP at croeger@domhou.org or 713-440-3714.
