2019-02-03 13:00 2019-02-03 15:00 America/Los_Angeles Cracking the Codes: Developing a Better Understanding of America’s Racial Divide

As Unitarian Universalists, part of what it means to live out our faith is that we are continually challenged to be open and direct in our opposition to unjust policies, practices, and behaviors, and to the ways they show up to inflict harm on those who are marginalized, and divide us from our own humanity. Shakti Butler’s film Cracking the Codes breaks down key elements of racism. Learn how racism operates within ourselves as well as in our economic and social structures. With this knowledge, we can better work to address the different forms of racism present. This event uses a mix of film viewing, discussion, and interactive exercises. About Cecelia Hayes: Cecelia Hayes is the equity social justice and engagement manager for the Department of Executive Services, King County. She advises senior department leadership on translating business strategy and objectives into attainable goals and plans that are aligned with King County’s goals for diversity, equity, racial justice, and inclusion.  She served nine years as a full-time faculty member, specializing in African American Cultural Studies in the department of sociology at Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, IL.  She a founding member of Black UU’s of the Pacific Northwest, and part of the Westside UU community.
