The Women’s Coalition of St. Croix will offer the community opportunities to address institutional and internalized racism in the U.S. Virgin Islands, through a virtual forum. “The Time is Now: Discuss, Digest and Dismantle Racism in the USVI” is a four-part series focused on action-oriented discussion, starting on Nov. 20. The sessions are designed to help build a stronger foundation in anti-racism, highlighting an informed, inclusive perspective. Beginning with a discussion on the meaning of racism and other related terms, the sessions will focus on the myth of race, historical racism in the territory and community action around anti-racism. Each session will include a roundtable of contributors, community members with expertise or knowledge related to the topics to be examined. The forum will be moderated by Allyson Reaves. Admission to the forum is free, but will be limited to 150 people, with pre-registration required. Visit wcstx.org for more information.
