Next Steps

How do participants intend to apply what they learned?

  • "Continue to learn more, talk about this group and the Project to other people, be an ally in my everyday life to the best of my ability, continue to work for change in this country"
  • "First, to try to process it, the information provides such an awakening and helps connect the dots from what didn't make sense before. Second, to educate every human being on Earth. Until we understand the worst of what humans are capable of, we can't make sure it never happens to anyone again."
  • "I intend to encourage others to engage with this text, participate in similar forums around systemic racism in our country, and bring what I learned into conversation as well as my everyday actions."
  • "Have difficult conversations with people about the impact of slavery and the legacy it still holds today. We need to keep this country accountable and hold it to the truth. I can call out people for their problematic or racist remarks and discuss how this ideology has grander negative ramifications."

Why or Why Not?

  • "I have attended over a dozen learning circles these past few months and I am truly enriched by them. I've also met some wonderful people!"
  • "I deeply enjoyed my experience reading the articles, learning from the others in the group, and feeling connected and engaged with the community."
  • "There are not many forums where people with diverse perspectives and experiences can come together and openly discuss the critical issues of race. The 1619 Learning Circle was an important opportunity for me as a white, Jewish woman to hear and process the everyday challenges of Black people in our country."
  • "For all the reasons I gave this five stars!"
