The Addison County Racial Equity Learning Community invites you to our meeting on Thursday, August 25, 2022. All are welcome and invited to attend - Zoom registration is required.
In the penultimate session in our series, we will continue to practice using calling in, calling out, and calling on to address the issues facing your organizations. We'll use a case presentation or narrative model to present the situation and folks will apply the JEDI lenses we've learned to offer support (historical and current factors, structural and systemic barriers, strengths, and cultural guidelines that will inform and influence the situation, community building through calling in).
We will also review the concepts covered and ensure participants have what they need to continue learning on any of the topics moving forward.
If you want to bring a topic or issue to the table (it can be something you've dealt with or are dealing with or something you anticipate coming up), think about what you'd like from the group and how AC RELC can best support you.
Also, please bring an update on your organization's JEDI Journey. How is it going? What have you learned? What do you still want to do or learn? Did you do any of the assessments we explored in sessions 3 and 4?
For the final session with Tabitha (date TBD): Our last session will be devoted to celebrating the group (yay!) and developing the next steps forward. We'll review the operating agreements and mission. Do we need to update and revise at all? What do we want AC RELC to look like moving forward? Do we want another round of training sessions or to work on our internal goals a bit more?
