White People's Work for Anti-Racism

White People's Work for Anti-Racism meets the second Wednesday of every other month on Zoom. This all-ages book club is for white folks to work at undoing white supremacy and the dismantling of racism. We encourage everyone to work in multiracial groups outside of this book club - which is what it takes to make progress - but also acknowledge that it's neccessary for white folks to discuss issues separately so as not to place undue burden on people of color or add trauma as we unpack our assumptions, undo our social conditioning, and work on blindspots. Each month, the selected book is available for purchase at King's Books. To see what we're reading this month, go to the main Events page. To be notified of meetings, please fill out this form. Email the book club with any questions.
