Unity360 Community Race Dialogues – Facilitated by Dr. Tameka Hobbs
July 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Unity360, a program of South Florida People of Color, is a series of guided community discussions about the ways in which race, systemic and institutional racism, bias and bigotry shape our society and impact our daily interactions. Participants will be encouraged to speak personally, honestly and openly; learn skills to identify bias, micro-aggressions, and racism; and formulate responses that create a foundation for empathy and understanding.
The goals of the series are:
- Promote awareness of historical and casual racism, and help understand and deal with unconscious biases
- Provide a safe space to speak honestly and personally about race and racism
- Provide tools for diffusing bigoted language and behaviors at work and school, among family and friends, and in public places
- Improve the quality of community life for everyone
- Establish a basis for deeper empathy to decrease “Us vs. Them”
