It's Back! A Workshop Series for White Women!


Transforming White Privilege
on the Path to Racial Equity

A workshop series for white women in the East Bay
offered by Neighbors for Racial Justice


We invite you to explore with us our understanding of white privilege and racism.
We will examine the culture of white supremacy, white fragility, and white space
as we learn to interrupt the harmful effects of racism. Engaging with readings,
videos, exercises, personal stories and restorative practices, we will build a
supportive, healing community while we cultivate the skills needed to show up
together as white people to do the work of dismantling racism.

Dates:  Sunday, September 22nd, 10am to 2pm, and 
Thursday evenings September 26th, October 3rd, October 10th, and October 17th   
Evening classes 6-9pm   (6pm gather, light supper together, 6:30pm class begins)
Location: A home in the Dimond neighborhood of Oakland, CA.

Cost/Offering: $100 - $300, no one turned away for lack of funds.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the Black Council of Neighbors for Racial Justice,
and the remainder will go to other local racial justice organizations from whom we learn in doing this work.

REGISTRATION:  Please email a paragraph expressing your interest and motivation
for taking this course, or any questions you may have,  to alanyasnyder@gmail.com.
Space is limited. Registration closes September 2nd.  

Becoming anti-racist is a lifetime practice.
We hope you’ll join us for this chapter of the work.
