In this video, from the June 5, 2020 Community Support Call on Leadership, Race and Privilege, John Wineland, Preston Smiles, Connor Beaton, and Dr. Siri Sat Nam come together for a passionate and personal conversation about race today.
The deep inner work men, especially cis-gender white men, must do to come to terms with their own conscious, unconscious, subtle and not so subtle racial biases
How to be both with the pain of our history and not let it hold us back today
The importance of creating spaces for honest intra and inter-racial dialogue
How to bring these important conversations into our schools
The importance of celebrating those who are taking positive steps and breaking through their old stories
