The Time Is Now: Discuss, Digest & Dismantle Racism in the USVI
Racism exists everywhere. We are not immune to the effects of systemic and internalized racism or the generational trauma that it perpetuates in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We can act to change this, now and in the future.
The Time is Now: Discuss, Digest & Dismantle Racism, is a four-part virtual forum, to examine racism in our community and anti-racism solutions to end it. A panel of contributors will provide information about the main topic of discussion for each of the sessions and participants will have opportunities for discussion in smaller groups in breakout rooms. The third session, Identifying Historical To Current Racism In The USVI, will be held on January 15 starting at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free, and registration is required. Click here to register.
