A change of plans!

 

Greetings to our wonderful Take PART community! We were very much looking forward to Michelle Lewis's talk on healing the trauma of systemic racism. Due to a family emergency, Ms Lewis is unavailable next week.

We invite you to join us instead for a watch party. We will view a 2021 conversation between Senator Elizabeth Warren and author Heather McGhee, who wrote the groundbreaking book, "The Sum of Us." This talk covers concepts from the book, which explores how white supremacy deprives all Americans of quality of life, including public services, social safety nets, education, health, and fair labor practices. McGhee's work details how appeals to racist beliefs undermine efforts to improve life for all of us. The video will be followed by a moderated group discussion. We hope you can join us!

You can register directly through Zoom:

The mission of Take PART is to confront racism and to engage in dismantling the systems that perpetuate ingrained racial inequality. We do this through events, education, and outreach that foster engagement in building community where all people are treated with equality and respect. 

In person Take PART events are held at the Portland Baha'i Center
