Racism and Anti-Racism Study Group

The Racism – Anti Racism Study Group follows in the tradition of study groups from AAUW Longmont’s past.  It resulted from a Current Issues and Advocacy discussion about the need to assist branch members in educating ourselves on the topic of race and racism and identifying actions we could take to further the cause of achieving racial equity.

The group initially focused on Black Americans, starting with a short resource list, which includes films, books, articles, articles, and podcasts.  Take a look and you’ll see what has driven the group to delve into this subject in more details.  The group is now looking closely at Indigenous Peoples.

The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 1:00 – 2:30 PM for a targeted discussion, to view a movie, or benefit from a local guest speaker.  The initial activities were based on a resources list put together by the group.

The study group has also taken tours at the History Colorado and Denver Art Museum to get a closer look at the issues and history of the two group of focus.  Participants in the group have also attended presentations on relevant topics at the Longmont Museum.

New participants are welcome at any time.  For more information, email aauwlongmont@gmail.com
