SAAR Program about conversations
Join Swedenborgians in Action Against Racism for a one-off evening Zoom program aimed at helping us all navigate talking about race and racial justice with our families, friends and co-workers. Such conversations can often feel overwhelming and fraught, but like with many things, practice, familiarity and knowledge helps. Participants will gather together for a brief introduction and then self-select into the following discussion groups according to interest.

+Unpacking Microaggressions: how some comments and questions land, and why they are so harmful.
+Sorry, not sorry: how to apologize in a healing fashion, either immediately or way after the offense.
+Actually, some questions are stupid and that’s okay: a safe place to ask what you’ve been afraid to say.
+Conversational Techniques: how to preserve civility and keep the peace without backing down, and how to rebound if hostility prevails.
+The Vocabulary of Social Justice: what are you talking about?

Leaders include: Rev. Shada Sullivan, Rev. Robert McCluskey, Page Morahan, Lori Gayheart, Kurt Fekete, Elise Genzlinger and Rev. Dr. Jim Lawrence.
