[Location of Workshop changed to UCSC Autonomous Zone (Tree Sit)]

Racism is a poison that affects white people
negatively, but white people are in a unique position
to benefit from it. This contradiction challenges all
of us to confront our own feelings about race. How can
we move beyond hang-wringing and easily-professed
solidarity? How can we be more effective allies? How
can we_______? What do words like ally, guilt,
privilege, and identity mean to you?
Let's re-start a dialogue, and explore what white
identity might look like, what anti-racism means to us
in this community. Discussion, reading group, planning
meeting, curriculum collection...

Requirements:
All are more than welcome, but the discussion will be
focused towards the experiences of white-skinned
people. Bring a book to suggest, a film to share, and
a readiness to confront the racism within and in the
communities we inhabit.
