A Workshop for White Facilitators of the Work
facilitated by Aryeh Shell and Mateo Hinojosa
Friday evening, Feb 24 through Sunday midday, Feb 26, 2017
Canticle Farm, Oakland CA
In service to the Great Turning and the construction of an equitable and inclusive society – something we need more than ever in the wake of the recent US presidential election – we will work to uncover the blind spots of white privilege and identity that can inhibit our capacity for true solidarity and systemic change. How do we act with integrity, awareness, humility and accountability in our journey to dismantle the internalized and systemic nature of white supremacy?
We will both critique and utilize the Work that Reconnects as we unpack whiteness and deepen our commitment to anti-racist action and allyship in our country and world at this historical moment. Join us!
To enable this workshop to happen, a small team of volunteers is needed to take care of logistics. Tasks include:
Registration fee: $200 (sliding scale available)
