Talking about Racism?
Thu 25 June 2020, 19:30 - 21:30
Is racism just an American issue? Or do you also experience it in the Netherlands, in your home country or in social media? Is the worldwide perspective on racism changing after the death of George Floyd? Are the demonstrations against racism and police brutality helping the cause? Are we doing enough to eradicate racism? Could we do something better? How do we feel about statues and street names of colonizers, politicians and writers from the slavery period?
Everyone is welcome and participation is for free! You can register via the red button and let us know if you need help logging into Zoom. We welcome people without prior experience with Zoom or online dialogues to join 30 mins earlier.
Black Lives Matter
Do you experience racial discrimination or police brutality? How do you then react? Who and what supports you on fighting racism and violence? Do you feel that the current demonstrations and press headlines are leading to changes of perspectives? Is your own approach to racism changing now? How do you think racism should be approached worldwide and in your hometown? Should we talk and demonstrate more actively to fight it? Should we fight it differently? How should we do it?

How does an online dialogue work?
- A dialogue is a conversation, where people talk to each other about experiences, visions and possible actions for change. Characteristics of such a dialogue is that you listen attentively to each other with curiosity an an open heart without judging or trying to convince the others. Through dialogue, you seek deeper insights to better understand each other. This way of conducting a conversation takes place in small groups of 6 to a maximum of 8 participants, with a trained dialogue facilitator. Read here more about what a dialogue is >>>
