Examining Whiteness Workshop Description

Examining Whiteness Workshop
UUCF Social Justice Committee
This six-session workshop will help participants examine the impact white supremacy has on us as
individuals and on society as a whole. In-depth reflection and dialogue will support participants in
deepening their knowledge of systemic racism, offering each other support and accountability, and
practicing the skills of interrupting racism.
Using reading assignments, videos, group discussion, and structured exercises, we will explore:
The four realms of racism and change: personal, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural
The history of white supremacy in the U.S.
Racial identity development
Claiming and shaping an anti-racist identity
Developing a positive white identity
How to be an effective anti-racist ally
The workshop is limited to 20 people so it can provide room for in-depth reflection, learning and
dialogue as participants work to deepen their knowledge of systemic racism, offer each other support
and accountability, grow beyond shame and guilt, and practice the skills of interrupting racism.
Participants will meet from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at UUCF on:
April 15
April 29
May 6
May 20
June 3
June 10
We ask that you commit to attending every session. This will be a real group effort and everyone will
lose if everyone in the group is not consistently present.
We are asking for $20 per participant for materials and snacks
