In January, Adult RE continues with the theme So You Want to Talk About Race, with a 2 part series:
Exploring Privilege and Power.
In the second class, Using Our Power to Create Change and Combat Racism, offered 1/19 at 7:30pm and 1/24 at 5pm, we will discuss how to use our power and privilege to counteract and dismantle systemic racism.
Sign up for this class here. Please note that this is a new link for ARE classes for 2021. However, once you register, the same link will be used for all classes through May.
Experienced presenters Kristen Morrow and Kyle Megrath, who presented the first class in this series on 1/12/21 (The Power behind Systemic Racism), return for this session. Both have been actively involved with various Racial Justice groups. Kyle began his journey as a trainer and facilitator when he was an in-home family therapist developing new clinicians to better understand trauma-informed care, cultural humility, and mental-health advocacy in Boston and Brooklyn. In 2012, Kyle worked on the marriage equality campaign in his home state of Maine, winning there before going on to win in Rhode Island and Indiana. It was during this time that Kyle was fortunate enough to be mentored and invested in as trainer, facilitator, and educator going on to design and provide learning opportunities in healthcare, education, for-profit, and non-profit institutions with a liberation, equity, and anti-racism lens. Kristen is a member of North Avenue Presbyterian Church and will become an active deacon in 2021. At NAPC she has been involved in a racial reconciliation group for the past few years. Kristen has a Bachelor's degree and PhD in the biological sciences, her passions lie with social justice for marginalized and excluded people (including exclusion based on race/ethnicity, mental health issues, homelessness, etc). Most recently, she helped lead/organize a study group on prison abolition.
