Event

Becoming Effective White Allies by Supporting People of Color with Carmen Morgan
This workshop is aimed towards those who want to be more effective white allies by learning how they can better support people of color in working towards racial equity. White people have an important role in undoing racism in this country. There are specific strategies that they can take on to help create greater equity in how the movement advances forward. This session will be most effective for white allies who already have an understanding of white privilege and are ready to partner more authentically with people of color. 3.5-hours.
