Community input sought on racism in Davis

From page A10 | November 30, 2012 |

“Breaking the Silence of Racism” is the topic of a workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, sponsored by the city of Davis Human Relations Commission. The event will take place in the Community Chambers at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.

Community members are invited to share their recent experiences and thoughts regarding racist incidents in the Davis community and ask questions of a panel composed of local leaders and officials.

The panelists will not be asked to present, but rather will answer questions or address comments that come from participants. Sandy Holman, founder of the Culture Co-op, will moderate the panel, which will include Rochelle Swanson, Davis City Councilwoman and local business owner; Jonathan Raven of the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office; the Rev. Kristin Stoneking, campus minister of C.A. House; Rahim Reed, associate executive vice chancellor for campus community relations at UC Davis; and Capt. Darren Pytel of the Davis Police Department.

The commission hopes that “Breaking the Silence of Racism” will:

* Allow participants to share their stories;

* Allow participants to discuss whether existing public policies are sufficient to address indifference, discrimination and racial violence;

* Help the public understand the components that sustain racism in our community; and

* Continue and advance community dialogues on racism.

“The commission understands that the problems we face in this community related to race will not be solved in a single community event,” a news release said. “However, the commission will commit to continuing this discussion in the months following this meeting, developing a framework of goals and outlining a full agenda of specific actions. The commission commits to taking the public’s concerns and using them to create an action plan.”
