Join us for an overview of the inclusive dialogue model and practice skills for engaging in - and hosting - conversations about racism. The dialogue format is structured to build relationships and understanding between participants from diverse racial backgrounds and to support anti-racist action in the community. This event is sponsored by the City of Kirkland.
The series is designed and facilitated by Debbie Lacy, Founder and CEO of Eastside For All, and Nura Adam, Founder and Executive Director of the Immigrant Women's Community Center (IWCC). Community dialogues are part of broader efforts by Eastside For All, IWCC, and others who are committed to social justice and community-building that fosters solidarity, belonging, and compassion.
Community members high school age and up may attend. NOTE: If more than one person from your household would like to participate, each person must register separately.
A mixed group is required to explore a range of perspectives and fully support the event’s objectives. In the registration questions, you’ll be asked how you identify racially/ethnically to help us balance the groups during the event. The event is capped at 40 participants. After filling out the registration, you’ll be sent a confirmation. If the event has reached capacity, you’ll be placed on a waitlist and notified if a spot opens up.
