Creating and Sustaining White Anti-Racist Learning Spaces

by
Ali Michael

In July 2020, I led series of three workshops on how to create and sustain White Anti-Racist Learning Spaces (sometimes called White Affinity Spaces) that are more than just another book club.  The goal of such a group is to create a space of supportive accountability in which white people can move forward towards action on their anti-racist paths. Here are the links to required reading to this session:

Teaching Tolerance Anti-bias Framework

Becoming an Anti-Racist White Ally: How a White Affinity Group Can Help

When Black People are in Pain, White People Join Book Groups

Also posted here you will find the handouts and powerpoints from these sessions.  If you are interested in learning more, please join my mailing list!  I will let the mailing list know when the next series of workshops is happening.
