Anti-Racism Working Group

HEY WHITE FOLKS: Are you interested antiracism but not sure how to apply it in your life? Having difficulty confronting friends or relatives about racist behavior? Do you understand that white people need to take responsibility for dismantling racism instead of burdening people of color with this work? If so, THIS MONTHLY DISCUSSION GROUP IS FOR YOU! Together, white folks will discuss real life applications for antiracism where you can learn, ask questions, and find resources.

with Karen McNamara, PhD
