Boulder Friend's Meeting, Showing Up for Racial Justice Boulder, Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, and Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center are co-hosting a presentation with Debby Irving, author of the award-winning book, Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race.
Debby will use historical and media images to tell the story of how she unlearned her white-skewed belief system. This workshop is designed to support white people in making the paradigm shift from ‘fixing’ and ‘helping’ those believed to be “needy,” to focusing on internalized sense of white superiority and its role in perpetuating racism at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels. The two-hour program, which Debby frequently presents at the White Privilege Conference, includes time for reflection, dialog, and Q&A.
Suggested donation $15 (cash or check). All donations will go to Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition. For more information, check out their facebook event.
