MELROSE — The Melrose Interfaith Clergy Association is sponsoring five two hour sessions on what we can do to end racism.

People of all heritages/identities are welcome to join in as the group focuses on the role of white people in dismantling racism and building a just society.

According to organizers, “We’ll examine the institutionalization of racism and impact of white privilege, and how our lack of awareness perpetuates racism. We’ll discuss readings, view videos, and share everyday situations in which we want to become more effective in naming and addressing racism in our families, communities and places of work. We’ll use role-play to practice effective ways to speak up, and develop action plans that challenge racism in our spheres of influence.”

This class encourages learning in a safe setting and all participants are encouraged to find allies to join in building a movement to bring needed change in our society. Class is limited to 15.
