EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Great Presenters: Rebecca Smoler - Let’s Talk about Race and Equity in the Suburbs

Tuesday June 1, 2021
7:30 PM until 8:45 PM


For many folks who live in affluent, predominantly White suburban communities like Wayland, we are often taught that it is taboo or offensive to discuss race. Even when wanting to engage in  this topic, one might avoid it for fear of saying the wrong thing or being labeled as racist. However, when we avoid these conversations, racial inequities persist within our community. In this interactive workshop, Rebecca will present strategies for engaging in conversations on race and racism as well as provide resources on antiracism efforts in Wayland and the metro-west area. 

Rebecca Smoler is a facilitator at Initiatives for Developing Equity and Achievement for Students (IDEAS) and a public school curriculum coordinator. She is also the co-founder of Wayland Community for Social Justice.
