Racial Equity Workshop

Understanding the Culture of White Supremacy

Saturday, April 28, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Facilitated by Ken Wagner, President of the UU Allies for Racial Equity

This workshop focuses on helping white people understand the racial component of their identity, and how to live with authenticity and integrity as a white person in a society grounded in white supremacy.  It involves understanding the structural foundation of racism quite apart from the bigotry and discrimination that flows from individuals and how it exists almost independently of individual racist people. We will work through what the role of white people can or should be in racial justice movements, what our role in Black Lives Matter might be, and what it means to be in solidarity with people of color and what it looks like to exhibit ally behavior.  We’ll discuss situations and responses, i.e. things we commonly hear but are sometimes frustrated in responding to in an effective fashion.  Learn more…

Registration is requested.

Light refreshments will be provided.  Childcare will be provided to those who register and specify their request before April 21st.
