June 10: Report back on PSA’s Racial Equity Assessment (Online Event)

$0.00

THIS EVENT IS PART OF PSA’S RACIAL EQUITY INITIATIVE PROJECT – ALL ARE WELCOME!

Portland School of Astrology (PSA) is embarking on a journey to examine how people experience PSA based on their race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, and the many intersections of those identities. This journey operates off of the notion that white supremacy culture in particular is present at PSA, and impacting BIPOC at the various intersections in which they exist (i.e. Queer and Trans BIPOC are marginalized even within LGBTQIA positive spaces). 

This event will be a report back to our community about what we found out through our assessment process, from surveys, interviews, and discussion groups. Alyshia Macaysa, the consultant who created the assessment with PSA, will give an overview of findings from the process. JP & Rhea will be on hand to talk about next steps for the future of the school. Students and community members will have space to share their thoughts on the findings of the assessment and their ideas for moving forward. Please join us!

This is a FREE Event. Please RSVP.
