Join us on for a transformative evening of uncompromising truth-telling, dialogue, and relationship-building that aims to open up challenging yet hopeful conversations around racism, systems of oppression, and white supremacy.
Featuring a screening and interactive discussion with documentary producers, authors, and founders of the Race2Dinner, Regina Jackson and Saira Rao, this will be an evening unlike others – direct, at times difficult, and not for the faint of heart.
The evening will begin with a screening of their film Deconstructing Karen, where we see the harmful and often dangerous effects of white women’s complicity in upholding white supremacy.
This screening is an opportunity to reflect on our own behaviours and biases, and to challenge ourselves to actively work towards dismantling the systems of racism and oppression that continue to harm marginalised communities.
Regina and Saira will also discuss their powerful and thought-provoking book White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better. This bestseller challenges white women to confront their own complicity in the systems of racism and oppression that continue to harm communities of colour. A copy of the book will be included at this event.
The evening will culminate with providing participants with the opportunity to connect with one another and process what they experienced during the screening and conversation.
We invite everyone to come with an open mind and willingness to engage in meaningful dialogue. We hope that this event will be the foundation for forming meaningful community relationships, continued reflection and action towards creating a more just and equitable society for all.
