“There must exist a paradigm, a practical model for social change that includes an understanding of ways to transform consciousness that are linked to efforts to transform structures.” bell hooks

Every journey must begin with a first step. You are invited to “Wake Up. Learn. Reflect. Teach. Act.” on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 9:00am – 3:00pm at the Discover Portsmouth Center. Registration begins at 9:00am and lunch will be provided. There is no cost to attend but you must register to ensure we have enough food and supplies.

Given the current state of affairs around race and race-relations in the United States, this is an opportunity for New Hampshire People of Color and their Allies to create a movement in the state where we can explore the impact of race on the quality of life for everyone (especially people of color) and transition into actions that will facilitate change.

During this first meeting we will outline areas of interest, examine strategies for working collaboratively and explore factors that might have an impact on how we work together. A series of meetings and events will be planned in the future to keep the movement going. This important event will facilitate dialogue, raise awareness, and promote networking, advocacy and action.

Who should attend? Anyone who is willing to wake up/learn/reflect/teach/act in order to create change! YOU MUST REGISTER TO ATTEND.

Questions can also be directed to Dottie Morris (dmorris@keene.edu) or Yemi Mahoney (omahoney@anselm.edu or 603-656-6028).
