The DEEP Collaborative, and the Durham Environmental Coalition (DEC) are offering follow up meetings to the Race and the Environment training last year. The goals of these follow-up workshops are to:
(1) continue the conversation we began last year and
(2) allow participants to share challenges and suggestions to apply to work within their own organizations.
In these meetings, Nicolette Cagle will lead each session with a different co-facilitator and/or guest speaker. We will use informal case studies and discussions to further our understanding of the issues and ability to apply our learning to specific situations. During the first session, we will lead an open discussion about key environmental justice issues in our community and demonstrate a problem-solving discussion method that will be used in the other sessions.
We are planning three sessions, on September 14, October 12, and November 16 from 10am to 11:30am. There will not be a charge for the sessions. It is not necessary to have participated in the training last year in order to participate in these workshops. If you would like to attend one, some, or all of the sessions , please sign up here by Friday, August 20. We will send out Zoom links to all that sign up, up to 200 folks.
