plain dividerRace:  The Power of Illusion – “The House We Live In”
Saturday, June 8, 2pm-5pm
The group Whites for Racial Equity (WRE) formed three years ago with a commitment to dismantling racism and the belief that humanity depends upon it.   WRE leaders will share their learnings about systemic racism, our internalized racism, white privilege, and ways to challenge it.

The PBS groundbreaking film series challenges some of our most deeply held beliefs and reveals how the Myth of Race took hold and retains Its power. “The House We Live In,” spotlights how our social institutions “make” race by providing different groups vastly different life chances even today, 40 years after the Civil Rights Act.

Co-sponsors:  Whites for Racial Equity, Monterey Peace and Justice, Peace Coalition of Monterey County
