PlaceUnitarian Church of Evanston
Address1330 Ridge Ave
DetailsYWCA Evanston North Shore is on a mission to eliminate racism. To that end, we will be hosting the second annual Racial Justice Summit April 6-7, 2017. Our inaugural summit drew more than 170 people and is the only one of its kind on the North Shore. The 2017 Summit will open on the evening of Thursday, April 6th with a range of artists who will help us explore the theme, “(Re)imagining”. The theme, which builds on last year’s summit, invites participants to (re)imagine- to imagine new ways of working toward racial justice. We invite activists, educators, faith leaders, practitioners, and artists to (re)imagine with us. The Summit will continue on April 7th with a keynote address by Charlene A. Carruthers, National Director of the Black Youth Project 100, a scholar-activist panel, and workshop sessions. The goal of the summit is to bring people – of all ages and demographics – together to deepen their understanding of their own racial identities, develop skills to work for change, formulate action plans, and engage with others. The summit is open to the public.

There is little doubt that the systemic oppression of people of color in the United States remains painfully alive. Even when we do not want to see it or speak of it, deep in our core, we are quite aware that: -the rules and standards that govern our lives are skewed in favor of some and against others -power and opportunity are distributed inequitably -the basic rights of citizenship are unequally available and race and racism shape each of the previous points.
