A community multimedia journey to social awareness
Throughout the year, it can get difficult to stay up to date on what’s going on in the world. And constantly weeding through good resources can be tiring, so we did it for you. Introducing: Stay Aware by Stay Woke! The Stay Aware series is a welcoming community ready to learn and grow amongst one another by exploring media. Each installment will have a different theme and featured resources. Our featured resources are exclusively handpicked by our team.
But it doesn’t end there! The Stay Aware series not only gives you a catalogue of well-informed resources, but also an eager community to share your ideas with. Each month’s event will conclude with a group video call to discuss the themes highlighted in each resource, and engage in a broader conversation relating to our social environment.
September-October BLACK LIVES MATTER Resource List
This month’s Stay Aware resources include Dear Martin by Nic Stone, Land of the Free by Joey Bada$$, and Patriot Act by Hasan Minhaj.
DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 25TH for the FIRST ROUND. Sign-ups after this date will be considered on a rolling basis, based on capacity.
Q: Is it mandatory to read/watch every resource?
A: Although we recommend using every piece of media available to you, it is absolutely your choice! If you don’t have enough time
or simply aren’t interested, you can opt out of discussion for that piece of media.
Q: Can I choose my discussion group?
A: If you would like to be in a group with your friends, make sure to write their full names on the sign-up form and ensure that they also write your name. We will do our best to accommodate your request, and if you have any issues feel free to contact us!
Q: Are there deadlines for when we should be finished reading/watching?
A: We have suggested deadlines that are spread out over a month to make your experience easier, but it is completely up to you how you go through the resources! You can go at your pace, just be ready for the discussions at the end of the month!
Q: Do I have to attend the discussion meeting?
A: We recommend taking time to attend and gain insight from your fellow peers, but we completely understand if you are unable to attend. We will be using when2meet to ensure discussion times are set when the majority of members can attend.
Q: Will I have to find each resource myself?
A: Our team has made sure that most resources on the list will be available to you at no cost! After signing up, each resource, as well as where to find them will be sent to you.
