The Washington State Progressive Caucus is so very excited to be offering a 21 day Racial Equity challenge for our members and their guests.
We in Washington State are so fortunate to have the incredible Erin Jones working for our children and our future. Recognized as a leader in racial and equity education, Erin will guide us through a journey of story, race, identity and how to be more effective allies, and leaders within our own families and communities.
Beginning Sunday October 4th, we will meet at 2pm (to be confirmed) for an on-boarding discussion with Erin.
For the following 21 days, you will complete assignments and exercises (15 minutes per day), on your own schedule meeting weekly on Sundays with the instructor and co-attendees for follow-up conversations as a community. In addition, we will have a private Facebook group for us to dialogue and work together throughout the process.
We’re incredibly excited to provide this education and opportunity for self-exploration and we’re committed to the ongoing process of increasing equity for all.
Part of Black Lives Mattering is paying Black people for their work. And think about it this way – we wouldn’t even be doing equity training if we hadn’t robbed People of Color of their labor and intellect for 400 years.
*People value what they pay for and so, we are asking you to buy in.
Our request is for a minimum donation of $21 for all 21 days. If you can pay more and help provide more opportunities for members of our community, then we hope you will generously do so. If you cannot afford $21, scholarships will be available by sending an email to email@example.com
This training is offered first to our members and their guests and they have ‘first dibs’ on reserving their space.
After September 26th, we will open registration to the general public. So be sure to purchase your admission today, or contact us about scholarship space.
We know that racism exists in our country and in our communities and we want to move toward a safer, fairer and more equitable society for all. This is one way to move in that direction and we would be honored if you would join us on this journey.
