Room: Meditation Hall

This workshop is for white people who see racism against people of
color as a real problem that needs to be addressed, and who want to
learn how to become more effective allies.
We will be exploring fresh perspectives on what kinds of communication
practices help open people's minds and hearts. You will have hands-on
opportunities to practice dialogic tools, to uplevel your communication
skills, and to explore how you can tailor these tools to your own specific
contexts. This workshop will also include an online follow-up session,
where participants can reflect on what they have been learning from
their practice.
