Oct. 26 to Nov. 23
Tuesdays, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

This five-session training is designed for white folks interested in understanding whiteness. Together, we will create 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 can interrupt these dynamics. Finally, participants will get equipped with tactics to train, organize and move other white people in the work of dismantling white supremacy.

There will be about an hour of assigned prep-work for each session, a combination of readings, videos, prayer and reflection questions.
