Anti-Racism for White People is a community of people learning about how to recognize and counter racism in ourselves and the world around us. Together we further our understanding of harmful systems and deepen our work as champions of racial and social justice.
This course will support participants in learning, reflection, and action-taking to combat white supremacy and racism in our daily lives. Though this course is designed with the unique challenges of white identity in mind, everyone is welcome.
Each month, participants will receive roughly an hour of readings, podcasts, and videos that pertain to that month's topic, with additional optional resources for those who want to go deeper on the topic. The cohort meets via Zoom on the fourth Thursday of each month from 1-2pm PT (third Thursday in July and November, longer sessions), where participants will have the opportunity to learn more, reflect, and learn in community.
