SPECIAL Online Living Room Conversation: Race and Ethnicity Conversation Series
May 7, 2019 @ 11:00 am - May 21, 2019 @ 12:30 pm PDTFree
Please join us for a 3-conversation series on Race & Ethnicity taking place over the course of three weeks! (May 7,14, & 21, 2:00 – 3:30pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:30 pm PT)
Check Out this four-minute video from a previous Race & Ethnicity Conversation Series to get a taste of this conversation!
In this series of three in-depth conversations, participants explore the complexities of the concepts of Race, Ethnicity, and their impacts on people from all walks of life.
We will cover new questions from the three Race & Ethnicity conversation guides found here. Some of these questions include:
- What qualifications do you use to determine a person’s race?
- Were conversations about race a part of your upbringing? If so, how was the subject approached? How did people around you talk about other races?
- Have you ever claimed an ethnicity that wasn’t yours or that wasn’t visibly yours in order to “pass,” or have privilege?
- How have race and ethnicity functioned differently in your life, if they have?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.
A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation.

It is highly recommended that you join all three. This conversation series is best experienced as a 3-part conversation with the same cohort of people in each conversation.

The conversation is open to anyone to join. This may or may not include visual diversity of participants. We strongly encourage people to appreciate the many different ways in which our participants have diversity in life experiences, backgrounds, and viewpoints.
Will the conversations be recorded?
The conversations will be recorded for internal, evaluative purposes in regards to the structure of our conversation guides and the experiences of our participants. No recordings will be made public without the explicit verbal or written consent of our participants.
