Upcoming DWMC Events
You Should Know About...
JT Mason, who spoke eloquently at the DWMC's moving panel discussion on race, gender and identity, will lead a special event on racism this Saturday, August 29, 5-8pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 490 Aguajito Rd., in Carmel.
Titled "Conversations on Racism: Becoming Better White Allies", the event is designed specifically for white allies who want to engage in the personal and political work of ending racism.
"I feel heartbroken and outraged by what continues to happen every day to people of color," Mason said. "With every Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, every Charleston, it is too easy for me - as a white person - to be overwhelmed into isolation and non-action. It is past time to step up and commit anew to work for real equality. White people must end racism in order to regain our full humanity and make our own lives better, for ourselves and for the world." Mason expects this to be the first of many conversations and actions toward ending racism.
A light dinner will be provided.

The community is invited to attend a candle-lighting ceremony to honor the nine people killed in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17. The event, organized by Seaside civil rights leader Helen Rucker, will take place this Wednesday, July 1, on the Seaside City Hall steps, at 7pm.
After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.'
