Awakening to Whiteness – 6 Part Series
Open to registered participants only
[Registration for spring 2019 is now closed, but we may repeat this series in the future if there is interest!]
Starting in January 2019, we will meet monthly on the second Saturdays of the month, for a total of six 2-hour sessions to follow a curriculum adapted from the open-source class series “White Awake.”
Anyone, regardless of racial identity, is to participate in this series as long as you can commit to all six meetings (things happen, but you should be able to attend at least five), but this series is definitely aimed at helping white people recognize and take responsibility for racial injustice and become better allies and friends for people of color. There is often a sense of awkwardness and controversy when people say this kind of training is “for white people” – understandably, it triggers a long legacy of racial exclusion! However, this is about taking responsibility, not being exclusive, just as if a group of men gathered to explore toxic masculinity and learn to recognize how they have benefited from sexism and contributed, unconsciously or consciously, to a culture of discrimination and violence against women.
