LOCUS Microaggressions Mini Film Festival
Thursday, October 30, 2014
6:00pm – 8:30pm
The Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation
“Everyday slight, putdown, indignity, or invalidation unintentionally directed toward a marginalized group.” So-defined microaggressions have been the subject of recent and prolific media attention, countless internet memes, and even locally documented by students at a Minnesota college.
To explore the myriad microaggressions that diverse communities encounter on a regular basis, LOCUS invites you to a Microaggressions Mini Film Festival. We’ll connect with each other over a light meal, watch YouTube videos (and welcome your nominations to locus.mn[at]gmail.com), and discuss the impact of microaggressions and our personal and collective efforts to navigate and combat them. Join us!
*This event is organized for and by people of color as a supportive and courageous space.
LOCUS hopes to serve as a meeting ground for people from diverse backgrounds to engage with one another and to examine our common needs and our common opportunities. Through the pursuit of stronger connection and purpose, we aim to create a community that welcomes and supports all. Join us at http://locusmn.blogspot.com.
