What White People Can Do About Racism Fundamentals, Part 2
How to act against racism from a position of unearned (and unwanted) racial privilege
Saturday, November 4, 2017
9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing
Presented by the Center for the Study of White American Culture (CSWAC)
United States society is historically and presently structured by race. White people have a privileged position within that structure. Many white people understand this implicitly and are uncomfortable with the inherent unfairness, but do not know what to do about it. This workshop is intended to give white people some basic knowledge about:
- Racial structure
- Building connections and cross-racial alliances
- Finding direction on your journey as an effective change agent
- Organizing with others against racism
Cost: $90 per participant, including lunch.* Sliding scale available.
