Exploring Whiteness: Unlearning Racism and Understanding Privilege
Wednesdays, January 16 - February 27, 2019
Either: Afternoon 2:30 - 5:00 or Evening 6:00 - 8:30
Santa Fe Community Foundation, 501 Halona Street 
This course is designed to help white people (and others who benefit from white privilege) to more effectively see, understand and counter racism - both within ourselves, and in the structures of our society. Based on compassionate and constructive engagement, we use home-study, videos, discussion, mindfulness practices, and reflection, to explore the ways we unintentionally carry racist bias and unknowingly participate in systemic racism, causing harm to people of color, to ourselves, and the world we live in. Topics include: the history of race in the US, institutional racism, white privilege, white fragility, and building our capacities to partner with people of color to work towards racial justice. Participation by application - deadline January 2, 2019. Limited to 20. 
Cost / How to register: By donation. More information, link to application, or to join email list —

Early Origins of Male Violence Conference
May 1-May 3, 8AM to 5PM daily
Santa Fe Community Convention Center, 201 W Marcy St, Santa Fe, NM 8750
A bio-psycho-social and infant mental health approach to a major social issue. By a very significant margin, most violence is committed by males. This conference examines the neurobiological, psychological, and social features seemingly unique to or predominant in the development of very young males. The conference addresses the question of how these factors may place boys at greater risk for this outcome starting in the prenatal, infant, and toddler periods. Professionals working with boys and men in the fields of psychology, social work, criminology, gender development, child development and child-oriented or crime-oriented policy makers will find this event of special interest.
