Thanks Barbara,

I also found the Labbe-DeBose article interesting and relevant to our (PPL drop-in) discussion last week. In fact, I thought the whole PAW issue was worth reading.

Regarding our discussion last week, I felt that everyone there wanted to learn how to be a better agent of change and was looking for insights into how to be more effective in confronting racism.

In our next get-together, it might be useful to share our own experiences – in our schools, work places, faith communities, families – where we have seen aspects of racism and talk about how we responded – whether successfully or unsuccessfully.
