Community Conversation will address micro-aggressions
The Impact and Damage of Micro-Aggressions, the second in a four-part series of Community Conversations for Racial and Ethnic Reconciliation and Understanding, will be held Saturday, Feb. 24, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Hamline United Methodist Church, 1514 Englewood Ave, St. Paul.
Micro-aggressions are everyday slights, snubs or subtle insults that demean or send denigrating messages to groups that are marginalized in society. One of the most pervasive types of micro-aggression is the kind based in race and ethnicity.
Does this sound familiar to you? Have you experienced these kinds of micro-aggressions, against yourself or others? You may even be making these kinds of micro-aggressions toward others, without knowing it. Do you want to learn more about them, including how best to avoid them? You are invited to this discussion.
Space is limited and a free ticket is required. Get yours at tinyurl.com/racialforum2.
Community Conversations for Racial and Ethnic Reconciliation and Understanding are funded through a grant from the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 1636 Van Buren Ave., is sponsoring the conversations, along with St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in St. Anthony Park, Hamline-Midway business Mosaic on a Stick, Hamline University, Concordia University, Luther Seminary and Hamline United Methodist Church.
