Teaching While White Virtual Workshop Series: 

Understanding Whiteness and Its Impact on Teaching and Learning

In many ways, the racial injustice being highlighted at this time in history is not new. What IS new is the way racial justice is now being covered by the mainstream media and discussed in every forum. Students are looking to their teachers to help navigate and make sense of what they are seeing. This workshop series is conducted as a white, antiracist affinity space so that we can develop a greater understanding of white racial identity and develop the skills and racial literacy to guide the next generation towards greater racial justice.

Workshop #1: Teaching While White: Now What?  

A two-session, virtual workshop that meets via Zoom for white teachers and administrators who understand that race matters in the classroom, but who still feel uncomfortable engaging in racial topics across racial difference. 

Workshop #2: From Ally to Accomplice — Strengthening Our Skills to Act Against Racial Injustice

A two-session, virtual workshop that meets via Zoom for white teachers and administrators who want to expand their strategies for increasing racial equity in schools. 

Workshop #3: From Engaging Institutional Resistance

A two-session, virtual workshop that meets via Zoom. These sessions will build on the concepts from the first two workshops: white racial identity development, challenging color-evasiveness and white silence, and identifying effective interpersonal interventions.

Antiracism for White Men

A five-part series to look at the intersection between race and gender for white men who want to improve their antiracist skills. Facilitated by a white male, this affinity group space will focus on how white men can work together to challenge racism. We will also consider how our masculinity intersects with our white identity. Participants should come ready to learn, grow, and support each other as we work to create a more racially just community.

Competition vs. Solidarity: Exploring The Relationship Between Capitalism and White Supremacy

A six session series exploring the intersection of race and class in American society with the goal of understanding the intimate connection between economic and racial justice. 

Session 1: Birthing racialized capitalism

Session 2: Buying loyalty: the price of whiteness

Session 3: A not so New Deal: creating the white middle class

Session 4: Economic anxiety and white supremacy 

Session 5: Anti-racism, identity politics, and whiteness

Session 6: Cooperative multicultural economies
