Bursting Our Bubbles: Are We Really Post-Racism?

February 3, 2013, 11:45 AM at Kairos-Milwaukie UCC, 4790 SE Logus Rd, Milwaukie, OR                                                                     

Do you consider yourself post-racist? Are you “color-blind”?  The Oregon Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) and Kairos-Milwaukie UCC invite you to a forum which may burst your bubble.

A panel presentation featuring Joseph Santos-Lyons, of the Asian Pacific Alliance of Oregon, Melissa Bennett, Native American clinical pastoral intern at the Oregon State Hospital who has written a play about her ancestors’ treatment at boarding schools, and Cecil Prescod, former national FOR and Oregon FOR Board member, Director of Christian Education at Ainsworth UCC; moderated by DeEtte Beghtol Waleed. The discussion will challenge us to consider Oregon’s racist history and ways we can address our own unconscious biases.
