Toxic Whiteness Discussion Group

July 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free

Each discussion group will begin with a different reading, video, or audio file that sets the tone for a facilitated discussion. It is harmful to racial justice work when white people’s emotional needs are prioritized over those of people of color in multi-racial spaces. This space is held specifically for white people to help process how white supremacy culture is toxic to white communities and individuals. It seeks to help people who experience white privilege see and understand how undoing racism directly benefits them. One hope is that by having an intentional space to process toxic whiteness, white people will be better able to allow for the emotional needs of people of color to take priority in multi-racial spaces. This free monthly drop-in discussion that rotates days every three months. For more information contact [email protected] or 802-863-2345 x6
