CAAR to host Oct 25 Workshop on How to Respond to Racism in Social Media

10-25-14-WorkshopFlierHave you ever read something on social media, got angry at the ignorant comment but then not know how to respond?!?!

The ways in which we encounter racism on social media often vary. It can meet us in ways such as an anonymous comment on a YouTube video or from a much more personal encounter such as a seemingly harmful quip from a Facebook friend.

Join us for this free and exciting workshop co-hosted by Community Action Against Racism (CAAR) and Line Break Media! We will explore the various nuances in responding to racism on social media. This workshop will be build on the collective knowledge we all have in what has worked well and definitely not worked! You will also walk away with tangible tools. We hope you can join us in this interactive, engaging workshop!

Complaints that are less than 1 year can be filed together as a class suit while they investigate the DNR in regards to K.V., a Hmong hunter who has recently filed a formal complaint.
