Workshop: What White People Can Do About Racism – Feb. 17

What White People Can Do About Racism
How to act against racism from a position of
unearned (and unwanted) racial privilege
Saturday, February 17, 2018
9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing
268 Washington Crossing Pennington Rd
Titusville, NJ 08560
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.
*Graduates of one of our prior workshops receive a $10 discount off the registration cost.

Format: a 5-hour workshop offered on a single day with a morning session, a lunch break, and an afternoon session. The workshop uses didactic presentation, paired discussions, case studies, small group discussion, large group discussion, role play, and sharing stories. Handouts are made available to participants.

The registration fee covers all materials, plus lunch.

The workshop has been developed under the care of the Center for the Study of White American Culture, Inc. (CSWAC) in Roselle, NJ. Each workshop is conducted by a team of CSWAC trainers who are also white anti-racist activists with a history as organizers and facilitators working in cross-racial alliances.

Requirements: The workshop is appropriate for white people who are open to learning what to do about racism, perhaps feeling they should be doing something but not sure what. The workshop is also appropriate for people of color who want to support white people who want to take action against racism.
