Alexis Braly James

Let's Talk about Race (formerly Building Bridges) is a series of workshops meant to encourage an understanding of racism, racial identity, and how race impacts society. By bridging some of the divides that exist when it comes to talking about race, these workshops will encourage a deeper understanding of participant’s own experiences with racial identity.

The topics explored will provide opportunities for participants to think critically, reflect, learn, internalize, and engage meaningfully with others in their community. 

Spots available for up to 35 people per workshop. After registering, you will be sent an email with a Zoom link to join the series.
