TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CELEBRATE THE WHITE PRIVILEGE CONFERENCE COMING SOON TO KANSAS CITY!!!
Here's all the relevant information, a quick look at their agenda and link to further reading along with date and time info:
Organizing. Strategizing. Taking-Action.
Deconstructing the Culture of White Supremacy and Privilege: Creating Peace, Equity and Opportunity in the Heartland.
Kansas City, Missouri
Thursday, April 27 – Sunday, April 30, 2017
It's interesting to see some local organizations listed as "stakeholders" and "partners" or having an "understanding" with the event including but not limited to:
Reach Healthcare Foundation
The Jackson County Community Mental Health Fund
Children's Mercy Kansas City
Insiders inform us that Kansas City won this national conference thanks to the effort of a former power player at CCO who now works with one of the sponsors.
On the even brighter side, it's nice that these folks will count as visitors among Kansas City's alleged 24 million annual tourists.
As always, we advise our blog community to have fun with this upcoming Springtime celebration of multiculturalism and diversity that may or may not be a distraction away from the advocacy of some really good people who work every day to foster a more equitable community for ALL residents of Kansas City. One denizen of our blog community noted: "Awareness of privilege happens every day. Being in service to our privilege is opposite of what I do." And for most people that's the case given that the overwhelming majority of tension that Americans feel isn't racial animosity but actually related to the impact of the disappearing American middle-class.
And so, we look forward to this event and what these folks have to teach us.
