Discussions that Encounter: professional black women and workplace racism

submitted by youngs@augsburg.edu

At the next DISCUSSIONS THAT ENCOUNTER on Thursday June 13, a panel of phenomenal professional black women from the Silent Generation- Generation Y (Millennials) will share candid stories of racism in the workplace. This panel will expose how microagressions play a major role in the perception of their racial identity.

Supper and social begin at 6:30PM with program from 6:45-8:30PM. Thursday, June 13th at St. Olaf Church (215 South 8th Street, Minneapolis.) Free parking is available in the church lot, enter only from 3rd Avenue (just past the church) due to construction on 8th Street. All are welcome, free of charge!

For over twelve years, Discussions that Encounter has facilitated open discussions about race, racism and white privilege. These events are open to all and sponsored free of charge in Minneapolis on the second and fourth Thursday evening of each month. Our vision is to provide an environment where people of all walks-of-life and backgrounds can openly discuss any aspects of racism. We use video or prepared materials to pursue a specific topic with ample time for facilitated conversation. The objectives of these forums are to raise awareness, build relationships, assist all along the journey of overcoming racism, provide education on historical and current topics, and facilitate open conversations that can’t usually be approached across the “races.”

Notices are sent prior to each Discussion Forum with details on topic, location and directions. Contact Bill Keatts to receive information or to be added to the regular distribution. wkeatts@austin.rr.com

Propose a Workshop for the Overcoming Racism Conference

submitted by youngs@augsburg.edu

The theme: Dismantling White Supremacy – Its Power, Structures & Culture is the focus of this call for proposals for the fall 2019 Overcoming Racism Conference. Workshops will be offered two afternoons in breakout sessions lasting 90 minutes each. We expect our workshop presenters to create participatory and reflective opportunities for participants to be actively engaged and stimulated.

We seek workshops that enable participants to:
* Acknowledge and confront the construct and legacy of white supremacy in this country
* Identify how white supremacy is embedded in the policies, practices, and structures of the criminal justice, education, housing, wealth accrual, medical, social service, and land usage systems
* Become familiar with tools, resources, and networks available to those who have committed themselves to removing the vestiges of white supremacy from these systems
* Discover ways to further the internal work each of us must do in order to effectively confront institutions long grounded in white supremacy
* Learn from each other about the work currently being done to dismantle white supremacy, and how we can replicate that work in our own communities
* Creatively envision a world without white supremacy in which everyone can flourish

DEADLINE: Proposals must be received by 5:00 pm on July 22nd, 2019

2003 Honda Accord for Sale

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

2003 Honda Accord EX-L for sale AS IS.

This 4-door sedan runs GREAT and has all-new brakes (October 2018) and a brand new steering column pump (March 2019). The interior is all leather, heated driver and passenger seats.

203,000 miles and going strong!

I am selling the car AS IS. The car has some body damage due to a recent run-in with a deer: the left headlight needs to be replaced, and the front hood is indented and needs to be fixed before a next oil change. The front bumper has some significant cracks from the cold winter, but could simply be more firmly re-attached where it was jostled by the deer. However, the car is running perfectly otherwise and I have been able to drive it without any problems.

Even with the recent front-end damage, this car is worth $3,500. I’m selling it for $2,000.

Please contact me (Green Bouzard, bouzardg@augsburg.edu) if you want more information. See the link below for photos.
