December 3-5, 2010: WHITES CONFRONTING RACISM
A TRAINING FOR CHANGE WORKSHOP
PHILADEPHIA AREA LOCATION
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This workshop is for white people 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 develop their skills and deepen their approach. And it’s for white folks who want a better understanding of how white privilege and racism operate in society and inside of them.
IN A NONJUDGEMENTAL, SUPPORTIVE SETTING, PARTICIPANTS WILL…
Build confidence in their ability to address racism through action;
Increase their understanding of how racism functions and what their role in it is;
Explore their internal racism and barriers to working on it;
Develop a personal vision for racial justice;
Build their skills in being accountable allies to people of color and working in coalitions;
Develop strategies for interrupting racist situations;
Increase their ability to support other white people doing racial justice work;
Build an action plan of concrete next steps.
The workshop costs $150-$350, sliding scale based ability to pay— no one turned away for lack of funds (see trainingforchange.org for more info on the sliding scale). Scholarships are available—contact the facilitators for more info. The fee includes readings, over 20 hours of training, meals and snacks during workshop hours, and we will try to help find housing for people who need it.
Co-facilitated by Molly McClure, Sarah Halley and Ali Michael.
