So You Want to Be Anti-Racist?


Adult / Special Interests -
Adult Winter/Spring 2021

This six week virtual course is offered to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of what it means to be anti-racist. Participants will be given tools to engage in uncomfortable conversations, develop their racial literacy, and begin to unpack how race operates in their everyday lives often without consent and/or acknowledgement, all the while building the muscles to move into action!

HOPE Speak Project

The HOPE Speaks Project began as an idea by two educators and moms who were struggling to engage their own young children in meaningful conversations about race and racism.

Through their own racial journeys and continual growth, co-founders, Kristen Pehl and Meghan Malone recognized the power of silence in maintaining the status quo and how well-intentioned white people sustain racist systems of oppression while believing in their innocence.

Inspired by the quote “Hope will never be silent” by human rights activist Harvey Milk, Kristen and Meghan were determined to begin an essential dialogue on the impact of race and racism using a family centered approach.

The goal was for families to engage with one another in honest, open, personal, and engaged (HOPE) conversations that would build the muscle to sit in discomfort and lead to collective actions that would disrupt the policies and practices that perpetuate systemic racism.
