The Orlando Mayor’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Commission in partnership with the Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) at Valencia are proud to present The DREAM Community Dialogue Series. These workshops focus on our shared humanity with an exploration of race, privilege, religion, gender, sexual orientation, bias, systems of privilege and oppression and practical application. Through these dialogues, a sense of honesty, reflection, critical thinking, and openness in the community are fostered. These workshops create a safe spaces for dialogue within our local communities. The Dream Series consist of six highly interactive, multi-media workshops over a selected period, creating sustained dialogue and culture, while building trust and relationship within the community. The workshops are custom tailored to address the concerns of the organization and community. The workshops build on each other, one after the other, to create an integrated series with an end game in mind- a renewed mindset about the value of relationship, community and trust within the local community.

Across the nation, people of all backgrounds are experiencing a time in which discussions about race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability and culture are at the forefront of their everyday lives. Many families avoid these discussions because they fear that conversations about race, bias, and racism may lead to feelings of anger, guilt, discomfort, sadness, and at times disrespect. Moving beyond shame and blame, this workshop invites participants to explore methods to discuss these topics within the family and personal spheres of influence. Identifying points of action and commitment to create positive change the family structure will be an important component of the workshop.
