Coming up on December 8th, Justified Anger will host an online panel, “Lean into Allyship: Have Yourself a Very Antiracist Holiday,” including CCHE Assistant Director Stephanie Budge, PhD!

The holidays often provide a greater opportunity than any to actively lead antiracist conversations. This session includes:

  • Post-Election Reaction from Dr. Alex Gee: Gee will share perspective on the road ahead and his response to, “Don’t you think things are going to be so much better now?”
  • Leading Antiracist Conversations this Holiday with Stephanie Budge + Tyler Nylen: We’ll dig into common racially-charged comments/questions, what they mean, and how to respond to them by building a toolbox of skills and productive communication practices. This includes phrases such as “I don’t see color.” and “Why do we have to keep talking about race?” Be prepared and empowered to engage in the conversation as an ally and antiracist.
  • FOSTER Spotlight with Founder, Jacquelyn Hunt: FOSTER (Families Overcoming Struggles To Encourage Restoration) has served children, youth, and families in Dane County for over 15 years. Jackie will share about her work with these families, the mental health impacts they often face, and provide a deep look at who is all too often excluded from the season of giving.

The session will take place on Tuesday, December 8 at 7:00pm. Register via Zoom here.

Thank you to Dr. Budge for contributing to this important work in our Madison community!
