VIRTUAL: White Folx Decentering Whiteness Affinity Group Mtg.

Monday, May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

VIRTUAL: White Folx Decentering Whiteness Affinity Group Mtg.
(formerly Folks with WhitePrivilege)

Please email us for the zoom link: wfdwhitenesscontact@kehillasynagogue.org

Any folks who identify as white, we’d love to have you, whether you’ve ever been to these meetings before or not! We work on de-centering whiteness at Kehilla and in the world — so that Kehilla is a more welcoming synagogue for people of color — and on becoming more aware of our own racism in order to dismantle it. At our meetings, we share feelings, build skills through experiential exercises and discuss actions. We also discuss homework articles and videos, which are encouraged-but-not mandatory, to sharpen our understanding and analysis. These activities help us learn, grow, and build community together, in our work to uproot white supremacy.

Penny Rosenwasser and Maria Lewis are co-facilitating this group.

Homework for May 8, highly-encouraged-but-not-mandatory, should take about 75 minutes
