Awakening to Whiteness Series
Online Access: Zoom login information and instructions.
Race isn’t just an “issue” faced by people of color.
The Awakening to Whiteness series is chance for those of us who are white to educate ourselves about the history and current reality of racism in the U.S., including Oregon, Portland, and Buddhist Sanghas specifically. In addition, we learn about what it has meant to be socially categorized as “white” – and therefore how race has impacted our ancestors, and continues to impact all of us.
The exploration of the curriculum is done in small, peer-led groups, with no cross-talk
