Event aims to talk racism
On May 14 there will be a talk and then discussion in Duncan examining “Why it’s so hard for white people to talk about racism”.
Presenter and moderator Heather Ferris, a local clinical counsellor and longtime anti-racism activist, will host the session at the Duncan United Church Heritage Hall from 7-8:30 p.m.
The event is described as a unique opportunity to building a socially just community in Cowichan. “Racial equity is possible, but it takes a willingness to transform our colonial conditioning and notice and disrupt the systems that keep racism alive,” says a press release about the event.
Everyone is welcome, by donation, to cover the costs. A follow-up practice group will be organized if there is interest. The first one is on May 21 at 7 p.m. at Burns Hall at the United Church.
