Greetings!

Sacramento Copwatch, with Justice Reform Coalition (JRC) as our co-sponsor, will be hosting an Anti-Oppression/Anti-Racism Training on Saturday, March 6 from 11am to 4:30(ish)pm at the JRC house on 3200 42nd St. (directions below).

This unique training, which examines systems of racism and oppression in our culture, will address the root causes of racism that precipitate the debilitating social conditions facing communities of color. The training will seek to create a safe space to share our ideas and experiences, as well as how we can best utilize our knowledge of racism and race privilege to effectively participate in struggles for social justice. All of this, we hope, will lead to new ways of thinking about and creating systemic change through justice-based community work.

Our training will include such topics as:

* Root causes of institutional racism
* Becoming an effective white ally
* Role playing and theater that dramatize racial matters
* How to Copwatch
* Ideas for social and community change

Sacramento Copwatch has invited two trainers from Oakland, CA, to facilitate this anti-oppression/anti-racism training. Trainers will include Marcelo Garzo, Food Justice Allyship Coordinator at People's Grocery. Marcelo will be assisted by Max Cadji, Greenhouse Coordinator for food justice organization People's Grocery.

This event is free, but we do encourage a donation anywhere from $1 to $25 to benefit Sacramento Copwatch and pay for training expenses. Food and beverages will be served!

Pass this email along to representatives of your organization and those who you feel might be interested in these discussions. PLEASE RSVP to Josh Cadji by email (jhcadji at yahoo dot com) no later than Thursday, March 4 so that we can make arrangements. Limit is 20 participants, so first-come-first-serve, and the event will be canceled if less than six people RSVP. I will send out an email the week of the event as a reminder. Also, check out the Copwatch blog at http://www.saccopwatch.wordpress.com for updates as the training gets closer...and just to see what we're all about!

Directions: Between MLK and Stockton, headed south on 42nd from Broadway, pass 7th Ave. and house will be on your right- 3200 42nd St. Sac, 95817.

Hope to see you there!
