2019 will be our Year of Action!
Thoughts and ideas:
-Internet Planning Group - so far Emily and Lana have agreed to do this, but additional members would be great!
-Emily will help Angie build a Symposium on Race Website (NO FACEBOOK PAGE!), to post past present and future materials, links and articles, and help with the Notices/RSVPs.
-Importance of facilitation skills: Lana will be our go-to facilitation expert for any presenters who need help/tips for their presentation!
-Having a series of racial/cultural discussions of many our members’ many different races and cultures
-Mixing people up: new folks will have a chance to meet everyone, all attendees will have a chance to meet one another.
-Tables will have #s with discussion questions for dinner conversation
-Presenters should incorporate small group time in all presentations
-Lisa Teech-Maguire needs to share the police brutality survey results, with a discussion.
-Include some sort of action-oriented part of each meeting (last 15 minutes every month)
-And/or dedicated action review meeting (every 4th month or so)
-Involving more young people in our conversations
-Having a conversation about the experiences of women of color (Velveeta and friend)
