This workshop is a reflection and strategy session for people who do not identify as white to explore the myth of white supremacy and its psychological, cultural, social, and economic impacts on their lives. Participants will explore the nature of white supremacy through the lens of American history and current social justice movements to faciliate the creation of strategy and support networks for healing and organizing across cultural and racial identities.
