Witnessing Whiteness [p2]

August 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:00pm on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely

Witnessing Whiteness meets the third Wednesday of every month in Portable 2 , from 7-9 p.m.

Tackling individual, cultural and systemic racism through ongoing study and action. All learners and levels welcome.

Our goal is to develop a knowledgeable, tenacious, dependable and forgiving SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS that informs and guides our thinking and doing as anti-racist, anti -bias activists. Meeting together, learning from one another, challenging each other, studying together (readings, social justice DVD’s, guest accountability guides of color) prepares us to do the critical ally-ship work so urgently needed every day, all day long. Being conscious of our unearned white skin privilege, our deeply rooted sense of white superiority, and how we have benefitted from and continue to benefit from systems of white supremacy are essential to reaching our goal of developing a knowledgeable, tenacious, dependable and forgiving SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS.

All are welcome anytime!

Please call Fran Davidson (206-452-7977) or Rosemary Lowden regarding current readings, expected guest speakers etc
