Event Overview

Have you ever thought about what being white means for you? Do you sometimes find difficulty navigating conversations around racism and/or white privilege? Do you find yourself getting angry or frustrated by racism and want to explore ways you, as a white person, can work towards a more racially just world? 

If any of these questions intrigue you, join this four-hour interactive group workshop and connect with other white people. This workshop is intended for white-identified people to take part in a series of activities, reflections, and exercises to develop a deeper understanding of how white privilege and white supremacy culture has impacted their socialization in all aspects of life and contributes to violence against people of color. The goal of this workshop is to develop a deeper understanding of how we are socialized as white people, what holds us back from being more vulnerable in conversations around race, racism, and white privilege, and language we can use in navigating these conversations. 

Free lunch provided.
