What White People Can Do About Racism

FUNDAMENTALS, Part 1

How to act against racism from a position of 

unearned (and unwanted) racial privilege

Saturday, December 3, 2016
9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
The Kirkland Building, 2 Main St, Kingston NY 12401

United States society is historically and presently structured by race. White people have a privileged position within that structure. Many white people understand this implicitly and are uncomfortable with the inherent unfairness, but do not know what to do about it. This workshop is intended to give white people some basic knowledge about:

-racial structure
-building connections and cross-racial alliances
-finding direction on your journey as an effective change agent
-building a personal support network for the work you do

Cost: $95 per participant, including lunch.* Sliding scale available.

*Graduates of one of our prior workshops receive a $10 discount off the registration cost.

Format: a 6-hour workshop offered on a single day with a morning session, a lunch break, and an after- noon session. The workshop uses didactic presentation, small group discussion, large group discussion, and a slideshow presentation. Handouts are made available to participants.

The registration fee covers all materials, plus lunch. Participants also receive a free book. Available choices are either Accountability and White Anti-racist Organizing: Stories from Our Work (list price $17.95) or Lifting the White Veil: A Look at White American Culture (list price $19.95). The workshop has been developed under the care of the Center for the Study of White American Culture, Inc. (CSWAC) in Roselle, NJ. Each workshop is conducted by a team of CSWAC trainers who are also white anti-racist activists with a history as organizers and facilitators working in cross-racial alliances.

Requirements: The workshop is appropriate for white people who are open to learning what to do about racism, perhaps feeling they should be doing something but not sure what. The workshop is also appro- priate for people of color who want to support white people who want to take action against racism.
