Folks with White Privilege Affinity Group Meeting

Thursday, August 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Please email Susan Schulman for the Zoom link: susanschulman60@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 de-centering white supremacy at Kehilla working to make Kehilla more welcoming to people of color and dismantling our own racism – we share feelings, build skills, and take actions. This is part of the Belonging & Allyship Initiative.

Homework for our August meeting is listed below: It’s highly encouraged, but not mandatory. We discuss it at every meeting — it’s part of what helps us learn and grow together, in our work to uproot white supremacy.

Penny Rosenwasser and Susan Schulman
