Dismantling Racism and Privilege

The book linked here documents the development of the Big Conversation on issues of race and privilege. It offers a process on how to develop such a program. It is our hope that it will encourage other individuals and organizations to begin and to continue this important conversation in their communities. While this is a link to Dropbox™️, a Dropbox account is not necessary to read the guide.  The book is Used by Permission.

Ongoing Events

This website represents a community partnership to dismantle racism and privilege in Southern Maryland. It stems from a 2018 public conversation on racism hosted by an Episcopal parish with a history of organizing and modeling civil discussions on topics such as health care, veterans issues, immigration, economic inequality, and gun violence.

This website supports the continuing conversation on issues of race by disseminating resource and event information to sustain the effort to dismantle racism and privilege in Southern Maryland and to realize more fully this region as a beloved community.
