The Blind Spot: Promoting dialogue around race, privilege and identity

$50 Guest fee (Free for NYSEC members)

Workshop hosted by NYSEC and guided by Russell G. Jones

What will it take to make the NY Society a more multi-racial community? Here’s a way we can start. The Blind Spot is committed to making the language and critical thinking skills around privilege, race and oppression more commonplace. Participants engage in workshops using multiple media with the purpose of helping them act accountable for these issues. It isn’t about shining a harsh light on guilt, privilege or inequities; it uses positive content and ideas to illustrate the debates and discussions that are constantly happening around us. The goal is to grow in our understanding of these issues both intellectually and emotionally.

Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
