The next meeting of the Kehilla Folks with White Privilege (FWWP) Affinity Group is Wednesday, September 11, 7-9pm in the Fireside Room. Whether or not you’ve attended before, we’d love you to join us! To get on the mailing list, email Susan Schulman, email@example.com. If possible, please read the suggested homework (below) before you come (but not required):
Preamble to suggested homework: In an article written by Pippi Kessler called ‘How to Plan a White Caucus Agenda’ , Pippi suggests three areas of skill building
• Processing white feelings: working through emotions that often come up for white people like sadness, shame, paralysis, confusion, denial, etc.
• Retraining: learning new behaviors, concepts, missing histories, and ways of seeing that are hidden from us in white supremacy.
• Action to shift power: taking action to redistribute resources, change who’s in power, alter institutions, etc.
At our last meeting we talked about some action-building possibilities, so we are suggesting two short articles to read and have also included an activity from one of the articles.
We suggest taking 3 actions from those links: there are small actions, and larger ones. You can do this alone or with your buddy. It would be a lovely buddy activity.
Also: We’ve put all the ideas that people have sent to us on the Kehilla web site. Go to website ->ACT ->Belonging and allyship. Scroll down and under the Affinity Groups there is a link for the resources. Thanks!
