Local organizations are helping communities here grapple with race and identity through film screenings and conversations.
Racial Justice East End, Canio's Cultural Cafe, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork, and the Eastville Community Historical Society have come together for the Confronting Racism virtual film series. The movies will be shown on Zoom, followed by small group dialogues that create "space for honest, heartfelt conversation."
The first screening is of "Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible" on Tuesday at 7 p.m., for which registration is online at bit.ly/3jpHsHx. The film is said to "bridge the gap between good intentions and meaningful change."
The second is "Cracking the Codes," on the "causes and consequences of systemic inequity," on Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. The registration link for that film is bit.ly/3eTBc7v.
Also, Progressive East End Reformers will hold their July meeting online on Tuesday, July 28. The subject is "budget justice and income inequality on Long Island and New York," with panelists discussing a number of issues. The registration link is bit.ly/39clW46, and "all are welcome" to take part, PEER says.
