This workshop, led by Daena Giardella, demonstrates a powerful approach to addressing acts of everyday bigotry. Her team will enact a series of scenarios which demonstrate unconscious or overt bias, and the audience will be invited to help the protagonists constructively "Speak Up."

We will start the session promptly at 11:35 and run until 1:25. Bag lunches will be offered to pre-registrants at the beginning and end of our session. There will be a brief intermission at 12:50 for those who have 1 pm commitments. Please come for as much of this session as your schedule will allow.
