Developing a Positive White Identity

Based off the reading, “Developing a Positive White Identity” by the Unitarian Universalist Association, we will examine how white privilege still pervades social justice movements and allyships in subtle and implicit ways. Examining the white progressive lens of power and privilege in a politically divisive climate is paramount in disentangling ourselves from our complicity in white supremacy and privilege.

Objectives: In this discussion based workshop, we will deconstruct one event in popular culture that creates space to moves beyond marches and political activism and better examine our own complicity and biases in those movements.
