May 17, 2023 - May 23, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The URJ is offering a robust schedule of workshops centering around Racial Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (REDI). They range from one hour to multi-part series and are open to all to sign up for as many as you would like. All workshops are free.
Below are the offerings for May:
Microaggression & Upstander Workshop- Wednesday, May 17, 2023 @8:00-9:00 p.m.
This workshop will be interactive and focus on common microaggressions that community members from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds experience. During this workshop, we will learn how to identify a microaggression, common microaggressions in the Jewish community, and strategies to disrupt microaggressions caused by others, as well as those (inevitably) caused by ourselves. This workshop is open to all. Register here.
Reconsidering Pride- Tuesday, May 23, 2023 @12-1:30 p.m.
In this workshop, we will learn about some of the ways people from various marginalized backgrounds (including members of the LGBTQ+ community) experience marginalization in our communities. Additionally, we will learn some shared inclusive language as well as tools that will help us disrupt oppressive behaviors and create a community of belonging that we all strive for. This workshop is open for all. Those with family members and loved ones who identify as LGBTQ+ may find this workshop very helpful. Register here.
Can’t make it this month? More workshops will be offered throughout the year! Check here to see the full list.
