The 2.5 hour workshop, "It's Not [Just] Personal: The Invention of Whiteness and Racism," discusses the ways in which people in power have historically and contemporarily used racism to divide and conquer us, the power of multi-racial coalitions, and the roles each of us can play in the current movement against racism.
Team members will present more about the chapter's work in 2017 and its plans for the new year. They will also share opportunities to get involved.
Bring a friend, bring a (vegetarian-friendly to accommodate others, please!) dish, and bring your joyous and powerful selves to this gathering.
Water Warriors, a short documentary directed by Michael Premo, honors one native community’s struggle, against seemingly insurmountable odds, to protect their land, water, and way of life.
Each screening will be followed by a discussion among residents and with local leaders to learn how the communities in Water Warriors stopped the gas industry in its tracks and how those strategies can support opposition to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a 600-mile pipeline proposed by Duke Energy and Dominion Power that would bring fracked gas from West Virginia across Virginia and through eight North Carolina Counties.
The events are free and open to the public, but hosts ask that participants RSVP in advance here.

Two NC State students, Sindhoor Ambati and Jasmine Wang will host a march through downtown Raleigh. The march's mission is to demonstrate that Raleigh is a city that stands by Dreamers and that we will fight for their rights. Community nonprofits and leaders will join DACAmented youth, TPS recipients, and other members of the community to stand in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors and support DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and TPS (Temporary Protected Status).
There is an urgent financial need for the select few DACA students whose permits expire between now and March 5th, 2018. They have until OCTOBER 5TH to prepare their renewal application and gather up $495 to cover the renewal fee!
“Zumbando por un Sueño” - translating to "Zumba-ing for a Dream" - is one way to help these individuals! Come shake, shimmy, and dance for a cause!
