Racial Awareness and Sensitivity Support Group- Multi-Racial – Charlottesville, VA

February 15, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm

Free

CAVA will lead group sessions for the community to encourage cross-racial conversations and dialogue about how RACE matters in a therapeutic way that fosters cross-racial relationships. Stressing the importance of being comfortable with being uncomfortable, the group will create space to practice the necessary muscles to foster deeper connections across racial lines.  

The six crucial muscles to build and engage in cross-racial relationships and conversations are:

  1. Intensity
  2. Intimacy
  3. transparency
  4. authenticity
  5. congruency
  6. complexity

 The group understands the importance of understanding and managing one’s privileged and subjugated positions as it relates to day-to-day racially abusive interactions (aka – Micro and Macro aggressions) experienced in one’s community, workplace, and social situations.

We are dismantling Institutional Racism and structural Racism while Increasing the volume of the “Voiceless” (subjugated) and increasing risk-taking in our Allies (privileged).

The goal is to move from being Racially Oblivious to Racially Aware to Racially Sensitive and ultimately Racially Responsible.

We all start from somewhere in Dismantling White Supremacy/Whiteness and restoring humanity wherever and whenever possible.
