Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture

Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture

This is a four-part series meeting every other Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m., beginning July 2nd and ending August 13th. This interactive four-part workshop is designed to build a shared understanding of the characteristics of white supremacy culture and how it functions on interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels. We will identify, discuss, and challenge the characteristics of white supremacy culture within ourselves and social institutions. We will share specific examples and explore strategies, visions, and policies to disrupt it. Plan to learn and deepen your analysis and leave with tools, stories, and visions for bringing liberation and racial justice into the center. In this workshop, your insights and experiences are valued.
