Event Details

Brainerd Public Schools, in partnership with the Crow Wing County
Child Protection Unit and Central Lakes College, is pleased to announce a free,
community-wide event featuring guest speaker, Seema Pothini, on the topic
“No More, Next Time: Speaking Up Immediately & Effectively When
Derogatory Comments Occur”.

This event will be held on January 16 (MLK Day) from 5:30 – 7:00
pm at the Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College in honor of the life and
legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. No registration is necessary.


Workshop Description: This workshop is designed to provide concrete tools to support
all people in speaking up immediately and effectively when hate, bias or
derogatory comments occur in the academic setting. We will use research,
personal stories, videos, and participant participation in the important work
of providing safe and caring spaces for any person who feels marginalized
because of some aspect of their identity. Participants will leave feeling
prepared to engage in the moment, instead of waiting for the next time, as well
as tools and best practices on how to validate and respond when an injustice is
shared after it has occurred.
