About Protecting Your Mental Health in the Times of COVID and Racial Upliftment

Protecting Your Mental Health in the Times of COVID and Racial Upliftment

Presented by Dr. Shea Lott, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry/Clinical Supervisor, OHSU

RACE TALKS (an interactive monthly program founded in 20011, hosted by McMenamins Kennedy School) is trying something new! - instead of one monthly RACE TALKS forum, we will live stream 3 forums with different discussion levels: introductory (July 9), intermediate (July 16) & advanced (July 23). Attendees should first take an 8-question quiz at racetalkspdx.com to discover their level of racial understanding and determine which event to attend; registration is required for the live forum via Zoom, and can be viewed live without registration via Facebook. All are welcome to attend.

About Virtual Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

Virtual Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.

Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
