“It feels awkward to say ‘The White Community’, right? A reason for this is that whiteness is afforded the acknowledgement that white people are diverse in their cultures, thoughts, and realities. The actions of one white person, or a small group of white people, are not systemically positioned as representative of all white people. So why are we so comfortable saying ‘the Black, the Indigenous, the Asian, or the Muslim community’?” - @ancestorsfuture
As white folks, we often do not seek to understand what our role is in anti-racism, equity and inclusion, even in our own workplaces and community spaces. This training explores the Eight White Identities and white saviorism; shares stories of both marginalization and hope from MN communities; and will help you understand the levels of whiteness, identify where you are on your journey, and find your role as a white person working toward being an ally and accomplice.
All learner types were incorporated when planning this training, with times for individual reflection, small group work, and full group sharing.
Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, the workshop will not be recorded so that people can show up as brave and authentic as possible.
