ONLINE – Folks with White Privilege Affinity Group

Thursday, September 10, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Please email Susan Schulman for the Zoom linksusanschulman60@gmail.com

Any Kehilla – connected folks who identify as white, we’d love to have you, whether you’ve ever been to these meetings before or not! We meet every month to work on decentering white supremacy at Kehilla and work to make Kehilla more welcoming to people of color – we share feelings, build skills, and take actions. This is part of the Belonging & Allyship Initiative.

If at all possible, we encourage you to do the homework. It’s optional, but we think you’ll get more out of the meetings if you watch the videos/read the articles – no time like this present moment!

Suggested Homework: (this should take you about an hour)–
