One of the most significant, yet perhaps neglected, aspects of providing increased access to justice is the challenge of sustained interaction between people of different races, socioeconomic classes, and cultural or religious backgrounds. Even the simplest of encounters can often leave lawyers, paralegals, community agency workers, or the clients themselves feeling confused, frustrated, offended, or (worst of all) seriously hurt—even when everyone involved began with the best of intentions. This workshop from ReelTime CLE explores cross-cultural interactions and the perhaps surprising ways that less overt forms of bias can affect how we interact with folks who are different from us in various ways. Taking a cue from the groundbreaking and controversial song, “Accidental Racist,” by country music superstar Brad Paisley and hip-hop legend-turned-television actor, LL Cool J, ReelTime CLE has developed this program as a forum for an honest, authentic dialogue about the ways that subtler forms of bias may show up, the impact they can have, where they come from, and what we can do to be more mindful of them. The unique ReelTime CLE format uses poignant clips from high-quality films (including the 2005 Academy Award Best Picture winner, Crash) as the starting point for a highly interactive discussion, and an opportunity for participants to collaborate in discovering practical, more effective ways of developing cross-cultural competence.
