Anti-Racist Workspace for White-Identifying Students: Understanding White Fragility

We are creating space for white-identifying students who want to be in community to learn, challenge one another, and hold each other accountable to shift from “I'm not a racist” to truly understanding what it means to be anti-racist in thought and practice. Whether you are just beginning your journey to become anti-racist or are well-practiced and disciplined at interrupting the script of white supremacy, you are welcome and encouraged to participate.

This workspace will focus on understanding White fragility. Please note this is a two-hour workshop.

Please consider registering for upcoming workspaces that will all focus on different topics/themes within anti-racist work as a white-identifying student. You must register on Engage for each individual event in order to receive the zoom links/and any associated materials/resources.
