R3: Microaggression and The Beloved Community
May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
[Part of the Race, Racism, and Relationships series.]
How do we build relationship in an anti-racist, multicultural community that recognizes how unintended, yet harmful interpersonal communication can occur? Guest filmmaker Mara Ahmed will share clips from her upcoming documentary, “The Injured Body: A Film About Racism in America,” which features Rochester women of color sharing their personal experiences and responses to microaggressions.
Chacku Mathai, Sheila Schuh, and Jan Cook will co-facilitate. Role plays will provide opportunity for reflection and practicing skills to interrupt harm as it is occurring, as well as how to move toward healing in our faith community.
A light soup is provided, as well as child care for those who request child care by May 4 (SheilaS@rochesterunitarian.org).
R3 offerings provide opportunities to build skills in listening, opening, serving — and specifically provide support for our First Unitarian community to communicate with loving kindness and reduce the impact of racial bias on our interpersonal relationships.
