Summary**RESCHEDULED TO 12/9** Join Seattle Civic Poet Anastacia Renee as you navigate the path to becoming a better ally against racism through conversation and writing.
DescriptionDo you get overwhelmed or feel helpless at the mere thought of raging against the racism machine? Do you ever feel like you want to help individuals who are systemically and subconsciously racially targeted or consistently being treated unfairly but you aren’t sure how? This is the class for you! Bring your guilt, your overwhelm, and your open mind as we successfully navigate the path to a better understanding of ally-ship through conversation and writing.

She is the author of four books: “Forget It” (Black Radish Books), "(v.),” (Gramma Press), Answer(Me) (Argus Press), and “26” (Dancing Girl Press), and her poetry, prose and fiction have been published widely.
