We are a fellowship and advocacy organization, in Springboro, OH, dedicated to creating a safe community of empowered and unafraid BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) children and adults, who belong equally, with rights and privileges afforded to all, regardless of race, disability, economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or faith.
Saturday, May 8, 6-8pm
150 Remick Blvd.
Springboro, OH 45066
Parents of children of color and their families are welcomed to attend our monthly fellowship meetings, a time and place for families of color in Springboro and nearby communities to learn and connect with each other, to build relationships and networks with other families of color in our community. We'll also discuss and provide updates on how to get involved in activities that serve to empower our children.
"What is CRT & Why is it Getting So Much Attention?"
Jeff Paschke-Johannes, Professor of English at Ivy Tech Community College, will briefly present on the competing ways in which race and racism is understood and interpreted in American society, including Critical Race Theory (CRT), an approach to understanding and responding to racism, based in research into US law and history, that is getting a lot of recent attention in news and social media. Discussion to follow.
In-person fellowship meetings include a potluck, so bring a favorite food to share. Please bring your masks. The Dennis Elementary cafeteria will provide us space to socially distance. Children will be able to play at the school playground, with supervision.
SPECIAL NOTE: Springboro's Juneteenth Jubilee is coming up on Saturday, June 19, 2021. We are looking for volunteers! If interested or if you'd like to learn more about PEACOC, please contact us.
