Whites Confronting Racism
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This workshop is for white people who want to challenge the racism around them -- and in their own heads and hearts -- and who are searching for a way to strengthen their work for racial justice. It's for white folks who already do anti-racism work but want to develop their skills and deepen their approach. And it's for white folks who want a better understanding of how white privilege and racism operate in society and inside of them.
