ABOUT THIS TRAINING SERIES
The series continues learning and development for white people who attended the 3-day White People Confronting Racism workshop, 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 further develop their skills and deepen their approach. And it’s for white folks who want to take action based on their understanding of how white privilege and racism operate in society and inside of them. (For more on origins of WPCR, see About Tab)
IN A NON-JUDGEMENTAL, SUPPORTIVE SETTING, PARTICIPANTS WILL…
Continue to build the necessary confidence and skill to address racism through action; deepen their understanding of how racism functions and what their role in it is; engage in somatic exploration of their internalized white supremacy and barriers to working on it; practice their skills in being accountable allies to Black, Indigenous and People of Color and working in coalitions; strengthen their capacity for interrupting racist situations; prepare to effectively support other white people doing racial justice work; and build a concrete action plan that includes a racial justice project of their choosing.
After the initial three day workshop, participants will attend three 6-hour follow up Saturdays over the next 3 months, with readings and “homework” in between. These will support participants’ implementation of their action plans which will include fundraising for BIPOC-led organizations and/or contributing to local racial justice work in accountable ways. We estimate 1.5-2 hours per week for homework. Follow-up sessions will also feature reflection, problem solving, additional skill-building and accountability.
This training series costs $400-1,150, sliding scale based on ability to pay— no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
