Local educators are invited to join us for a viewing of episode 1 of RACE – The Power of an Illusion, a three-part PBS documentary about race, privilege, policy, and justice. The first episode challenges what we have taught, learned, and practiced in terms of how people are classified and bundled into distinct biological groups.
 This event is free and open to all educators in and around the Portland area.
