Being a White Ally

We had a gathering to make our first dialogue on 'Being a White Ally' a success. We had a thoughtful, deep exchange of ideas, experiences, and listening, and heard from many of you that you'd like to continue to explore this together.

  • For those who missed our "On Being a White Ally" introductory session, we will offer the webinar on 11/8, 12-1:30pm.

  • In 2019, we will launch an in-depth, small group learning community that will connect monthly on this topic. We ask that anyone interested in this in-depth experience first participate in one of the above "On Being a White Ally" introductory sessions.
