This training will allow participants to develop a shared understanding of whiteness, reflect on how it lives in us and shapes our lives, and utilize the gifts of Ignatian spirituality to prayerfully consider how we free ourselves to think and act outside of the dictates of white dominant culture. Participants will learn to articulate their own story of whiteness and analyze how their work is impacted by implicit bias and white supremacy, with a particular focus on how our faith institutions perpetuate these dynamics. Finally, participants will get equipped with tactics to train, organize and move other white people in the work of dismantling white supremacy.
