White People Challenging Racism: Moving from Talk to Action   NEW!

Co-facilitators: Michelle Chalmers and Colin Stokes

Racism is a system that White people created, maintain, and condone; therefore, White people in particular need to take immediate action to end it. "White People Challenging Racism: Moving From Talk to Action" is a small, online workshop which meets for five sessions to guide participants to:

Examine the role of White people in dismantling racism, becoming antiracist, and building an equitable society;
Explore the impact of White privilege, and how being unaware of that advantage helps perpetuate racism;
Write about their own racial awareness journeys;
Enhance their understanding and capacity for action through discussion of short readings, videos, and other materials;
Share everyday racism-related situations where they may not have effectively responded and, using role plays, work out effective ways to challenge racism;
Develop a specific plan for challenging racism in the workplace, an organization, or in the community, while being encouraged to find other people in their lives who can provide support and serve as accountability partners in implementing your plans.

Please note: Attendance at all sessions and completion of all assignments are required. Each participant will receive a phone call from one of the facilitators prior to the start of this program to review the commitment and class requirements. Participants of all identities are welcome.
