OMA Book Group Discussion: Racial Equity and Civic Unrest, 08/06/20, 4:30 & Happy Hour, 5:30

Thursday 08/06/20, 4:30 OMA Book Group Discussion About Racial Equity and Civic Unrest
Thursday 5:30 Happy Hour
For OMA Members:
Difficult conversations about race and politics are happening around us.
Each of us has the skills to play a small but important role in this moment.
If you would like to know how conversations and mediators can address these matters, OMA is hosting events around racial equity and civic unrest on Zoom. Invitation Links were emailed to members.
OMA Book Group: Racial Equity Series, Thursday, Aug. 6th, 4:30pm-5:30pm. Join us for our first discussion of books on racial equity, just before our August 6th Happy Hour. We are starting with “Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence: Understanding and Facilitative Difficult Dialogues on Race” by Derald Wing Sue. In the future, we could also discuss: How to Be an Antiracist by Ibrahim W. Kendi; So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo; Dog Whistle Politics by Ian Haney Lopez.
Coming Soon:
The Divided Community Project: Friday, Sept. 11th, 12:00pm-1:00pm. Join us for a presentation/Q&A by mediation powerhouse Nancy Rogers and Divided Community Project Co-Director Carl Smallwood. In 2015, the Moritz College of Law launched an effort to train community leaders to address civic unrest with conflict resolution skills. This effort proved prescient, given the nationwide protests following the homicide of George Floyd by white police officers.
Mark your calendars now!
