Courageous Conversations Towards Racial Justice is a dialogue-centered initiative on racism and privilege designed to address racial healing, equity, and justice.  

Courageous Conversations logo

The Courageous Conversations Facilitation Team, a group of faculty, students and administrators, brings together a diverse group of the BC Community for conversations on race and racial justice. 



The program was created on the principle that racism impacts all of us. We recognize that understanding, interrupting, and dismantling internal and external racism is lifelong work and cannot just be achieved by a series of seminars, but we believe that engagement with people across various lines of difference is an essential element of this work. As we come to know one another, we will recognize the inherent dignity within each of us, find common ground, and learn from one another in a trusting, authentic community.
