Why should white people work for racial justice: because it’s the right thing to do? to be a good ally? or because white people have something at stake, too?
Join us Sunday, January 13 from 1-3pm for a conversation facilitated by Tema Okun, a teacher, writer, and activist who has focused on racial equity and justice for over 30 years.
Building on her work on white supremacy culture, her current work is focused on clarifying the stake white people have in racial justice. She is interested in moving the needle from ally to accomplice, from helping to solidarity, knowing that white people need to live into a commitment to racial justice just as much as– if not more than– those targeted by racism.
All are welcome at this event (it’s not just for white people). Admission is free. At-will donations to the Friends House, a nonprofit organization, are welcome. The event space and bathroom are wheelchair-accessible.
