Anti-Racist Workspace for White-Identifying Students: Understanding What it Means to be White

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 what it means to be white.

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.

If you have any questions, concerns, or requests for accommodations, please email
