VIRTUAL: White Folx Decentering Whiteness Affinity Group Mtg.

Thursday, January 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

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

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 work on de-centering whiteness at Kehilla — 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 Susan Schulman co-facilitate this group. We generally meet on Wednesday or Thursday evenings in the middle of each month.

Why did our group vote to change our name? People of Color on Kehilla’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Team brought to our attention that our previous name — “Folks with White Privilege” – doesn’t fully define what our group is doing: that we are working towards dismantling white privilege and decentering whiteness, so our name needs to reflect what our group actually represents. Please welcome our new name: White Folx Decentering Whiteness!

Homework for our January meeting will be posted after December 16, stay tuned!
