Film Screening & Discussion: The House We Live In

Saturday, February 4th at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room
Race: The Power of an Illusion
This acclaimed film focuses on how our government institutions have shaped and created race, giving different groups vastly unequal life chances. From court systems called upon to determine who was white to government policies and subsidies that created segregated suburbs, the movie reveals how ordinary social institutions quietly channel wealth and opportunity so that white people benefit from a racist system without personally being racist. After the film, join us for a welcoming and empowering discussion of how these political legacies shape our own communities, and the strategies that empower and inspire us to respond.
