Courageous Community Conversations: White Privilege and Microaggressions in Greater Goffstown

Join the ConversationDiscussion at Saint Anselm College, President's Dining Room in Davison Hall

Recent events in the Greater Goffstown area, large and small, are making some question the openness of our community. Could it be that there are certain privileges many of us have (white privilege) which form the basis for those acts of the macro and microaggressions which lead to this questioning? This 2-hour, highly-interactive conversation where participants will learn what white privilege is, how it has already impacted our community through macro and microaggressions, and what we can do to create a more welcoming community.

Registration is required.

This event is part of our Courageous Community Conversations series; please visit http://www.goffstownlibrary.com/communityconversation for more information.

This year’s Courageous Community Conversations are focused on race and diversity in America. Our reading list and conversations are designed to help us understand many racial and cultural issues, as well as provide a starting point to open up the conversation about race in Goffstown, and hopefully, in other surrounding communities. In our present social environment, it is important to be racially and culturally diverse, to be socially aware, and to learn and grow.

Courageous Community Conversations: Recognizing and Understanding Implicit Bias

Join the ConversationDiscussion at Parks & Recreation Department, Conference Room

Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. This is a 2-hour, highly interactive workshop where participants will learn how to recognize the unconscious biases we all have and how to interact with the others without assuming we know how they want to be treated thus creating a more welcoming environment.

Registration is required. For campus map and parking information for Saint Anselm, please visit www.anselm.edu/admission-aid/visit/campus-map-parking.
