Join us for the Make Change Film Series, this Tuesday, October 26 from 4-5:30 p.m. Western students that attend will receive a $10 gift card to subside the previously offered meal.
 
The film series aims to provide community conversations with the purpose of covering important community issues. Following the film, participants debrief and engage in discussions and reflections as we challenge all to think about ways, we —together— can make change in our community.​
 
Dillon Mader, one of Western’s finest and a Creating a Healthier Multicultural Community La Crosse facilitator (CHMC), will join us again in facilitating conversations about cultural awareness and knowledge. The program is designed to widen the awareness, understanding, respect, and empathy for the lived realities of people with a wide range of racial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds.
 
Our upcoming short film, Whitewashed: Unmasking the World of Whiteness synopsis is, "This documentary chronicles white Americans reflecting on white racial identity and racism.  Areas the video explores include; the question of how people of European descent were transformed into 'white' people; what it means to be white; white privilege; the difference between personal prejudices and societal racism; and how White people can challenge contemporary forms of societal racism."
 
We would love to see you on Tuesday, October 26, from 4 PM to 5:30 PM via Zoom to engage in watching a documentary and participate in interactive, learning conversations. Follow the Zoom link here: https://westerntc-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwrfuCorTIuGde_6ChXD8PjE...
