Racial Justice Discussion – March 12, 2022

All people are invited to join our next meeting of hearts and minds!
Every thought, conversation and action makes a difference. This isn’t a book club–reading is not required. Rather, this is a way to support each other in our commitment to increasing awareness and dismantling white supremacy.
Our February meeting touched on implicit bias and how to respond when we notice it in ourselves and others. We watched this 3-minute video together and discussed. A new participant shared memories related to race. And we had an in-depth discussion about the recent Whoopie Goldberg incident which yielded rich insight and emotion. “Shame doesn’t help me move forward…Being aware of it can be a call to power.”

After George Floyd’s murder by a Minneapolis Police officer on May 25, 2020, our mindfulness community came together as a commitment to being a positive force for racial justice. We continue to evolve these monthly open meetings to affect real and lasting change in the fabric of the United States and the world.
