Multicultural Diversity Workshop
Dr. Pat Wilson-Cone
It’s critical that we have these conversations for the sake of ourselves and others. Start these conversations today in your CPE centers, homes, families, with friends, partners and significant others, faith spaces, with all races, creeds, genders, believers and non-believers. Start the critical conversations and let’s stop hiding behind what we know is hindering us from growing, knowing and exploring. The time is now to write about what you are hearing, seeing, feeling and even smelling day to day when it comes to Multicultural Diversity. Dr. Cameron Byrd one of our esteemed founders of REM states the following: “Look deeply into your own souls and spirits to discover the roots of multicultural diversity and the impact it has on your own life; In the midst of today’s forces which tend to denigrate various cultures and ethnicities,…there is a light in the darkness.” So please come to this workshop to wonder and explore together about what that LIGHT is for you and me. Peace shalom shalom
Caring For The African American S.E.L.F. In CPE Supervision
Dr. Danielle Buhuro
We live in a perilous time of police brutality, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia. How do we supervise African American CPE students during a time of extreme hatred extending all the way from the Oval Office? This workshop will highlight how to supervise African American CPE students’ specific Social, Emotional, Life meaning and purpose, and Faith (S.E.L.F.) needs. The goal is that we as educators provide a holistic approach to supervising and caring for African Americans students especially in an age of #BlackLivesMatter.

Dr. Urias Beverly
We as REM celebrates are not celebrating year 1923 nor limiting our celebration to year 2020 or even year 2099. Our history was a part of the beginning of ACPE (which was not its beginning either. The point is that now that we have shown ourselves competent, claimed our heritage and tasted the fruit of our future we cannot and must not stand still or place limitations on all we have lived through and are living with as a community of REM travelers. We are at the crossroads of our past and our future. We must become spiritually aligned so we can bring to bare all that we have given and gained to our next landing of hope. So, you ask, what do you mean by spiritual alignment? I’m glad you asked. We will discover the answer together at the workshop.
