Our Courageous Conversations topic for this month is:
Critical Race Theory (CRT) – What is it? Where is it? Why is it being attacked? How can we combat misinformation?
Legislation banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been introduced in Wisconsin (and other places). We will talk about how CRT has become a lightning rod for people’s reactions to the concept of structural racism and what we can contribute to a respectful conversation about it.
Please bring your questions and observations.

An unmoderated 30 minutes will begin at 7 pm. ( We’re calling it The Parking Lot).
Just to remind us all – the agreements for Courageous Conversations are:
1) stay engaged, 2) experience discomfort, 3) speak your truth and 4) expect and accept non-closure.
Here is the reason for the survey connected to registration (in case you haven’t already turned it in):
Demographic information is being collected to provide YWCA Rock County funding partners a profile range of our participants. Names are collected to confirm the number of unique participants and will not be included in shared data. Your willingness to tell us about you allows us to secure funding to provide programs that benefit our community.
Next month, our working title is:
Wage inequity – Labor Day month reminds us of the value of a job well done – and of the disparity in wages for women (and men) of color.
We hope to see you on Monday.
Beth, Amiee & Neil
