Join MRG Foundation and Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC) for a Eugene-based discussion of applied Critical Race Theory and practice using theory as a tool, to identify and disrupt white supremacy.

Organizers, activists, donors, and funders all have something at stake given the history of white supremacy in Oregon and the recent rise of White nationalism. In this community conversation, social justice organizations are invited to think critically about the political frameworks that guide our organizing strategies and inform movement building in these times.

MRG has begun the process of moving from a Racial Justice Lens to applying Critical Race Theory as our central framework to forward Racial Justice. How are you applying a racial analysis to your work for social justice? Share your organization's strategies and learn from others.

What’s the purpose? Bring people together and learn how others are addressing this issue, build some common language, and share CRT as a tool to disrupt white supremacy.

Date: May 23, 2018

Time: 6pm to 8:30pm

Place: UO Wesley Center, 2520 Harris St, Eugene, OR 97405
