Say goodbye to summer and reconnect with SCRWP friends! This is a great time to share ideas for what you think would make SCRWP great this year. Whether this is your first event with us or you are a regular, we want to hear what you have to say, and just hang out!

We will be meeting near the entrance gate (near 39.948848, -75.203161). We'll provide the lunch, but please bring your own blankets and beverages!

4:15 pm - 10:15 pm

Join us to discuss thought-provoking articles on racism and anti-racist work. No prior knowledge on these topics is required. White folks, who may have thought less about these issues, are especially encouraged to attend. All participants must come committed to doing anti-racist work, including challenging how racism has affected your own thoughts and behaviors. The goal is to gain a clearer understanding of the effects of racism on society at all levels and how to combat its virulent hold over ourselves and our culture.
