CCGTX Assembly: Working on Race and Privilege
July 15, 2017
More than 50 people turned out for Courageous Conversations GTX July 15 Assembly, Working on Race and Privilege. The event focused on the history of race, which is an socioeconomic construct and not based on biology, along with interactive events to illustrate what white privilege is and how it can be damaging to people of all races. We left with a charge to use the information we had learned to transform Georgetown into a more compassionate, caring and inclusive community.
CCGTX Assembly, April 15:

CCGTX Potluck and Assembly Jan. 21, 2017
About 50 people came together on Jan. 21, 2017 for the second Chat ‘n Chew Potluck and CCGTX Assembly at San Gabriel Unitarian Universalist Church. As usual, we were blessed with an abundance of food.
Using the “Red Bench” model shared with us by Interfaith Action of Central Texas, we had great conversations and respectful, meaningful dialogue around the issue of Trust. We welcomed several newcomers to our midst and seasoned veterans of CCGTX
helped facilitate discussions.
Convener Ron Swain also introduced the Learning/Action Groups whose leaders spelled out their goals for the future and invited others to join those groups that intersect with their interests and passions.
