Have you ever faced an uncomfortable situation where you tried to speak out or where you wish you would have spoken out against racism-outright or subtle-toward you or someone else? If so, please come to this anti-racism theater workshop where participants using role-play will gain confidence and "practice" speaking up/pushing back against racism/racial injustice. This workshop is led by Natali Freed, a performer/educator and past co-facilitator of White People Challenging Racism: Moving from Talk to Action.
