Please RSVP to : 


Check out report from our last Salon here 
For real, how many times a week does someone –friend, stranger, co-worker, boss, family member, neighbor, teammate, artist co-collective member say something racist to you? How hard is it to find appropriate words to confront these statements in a loving articulate totally kicking racism in the ass kind of way? 

Well we are gonna practice talking!  Sounds small but these opportunities to shift consciousness happen everyday.

The content will include role playing (one. solid. hour.) and the building of tactics for confronting racism in different situations.  Feel free to bring or email role playing situations that you want to see discussed.  Each salon will go more in depth so every time will be different! 

These Salons are open to everyone not just white people, although they are coordinated by white people with the intention of addressing white people. In the past there have been people of color in attendance and also assisted with planning help. At the last Salon we broke up into two different groups at the end – one for white people and one for people of color. This was suggested by POC and went really well. Please contact us if you want to know the demographics of people who have rsvp’ed if it would make you more likely to participate.
