Who We Are, What We Say, What It Means

    Conversations About Race

    Recommended Grades: 9-12 | Flex Type: Scheduled & Facilitated

    You’ve probably heard—or even felt—that political and social discourse is polarized. You’ve probably asked yourself, then, “What can I do in order to shape political & social discourse in my family, my campus, my community?” If so, you’ll find like-minded, change-oriented, growth-seeking allies in this flex course. This five-day Flex course will explore these questions, inviting students to examine how to get into the habit of self-reflection, how to participate in polarized discourse, and how to consider carefully the next steps for you, as a specific you, in your own specific here & now.

    All you will need is something to write on, something to write with, and a willingness to grow for and with each other. No shame, no blame, no guilt. This course will be animated by resources, personal reflection, and daily discussions for and with people who might not look like you, might not live like you, might not identify as you do. Join us, as we think and share and grow toward a more just, more empathetic future, for yourself and for all of us.
