Limited Capacity seats available

We aim to support white people in identifying when, why, and how race and whiteness were constructed, how whiteness negatively impacts white people, and why white people need spaces to intentionally meet and constructively discuss our whiteness. We know that white supremacy culture, perpetuated by white staff, harms youth of color in their programs. We also hope that this session serves as a primer to move providers forward in their journey towards engaging in cultural humility with the youth they serve. People of Color are welcome to audit the session, but the focus will be on speaking to and with white people.
