White People Working On Racism is an open forum that provides a space for white people to dig in and honestly speak about racism with each other. It is an opportunity to share about moments when you have been biased, prejudiced or even racist in your life while being seen and supported in your humanity. How did those moments impact you? How did it make you feel? What were some of your struggles, insights, learnings? If you were aware or if you were made aware, how did those moments impact the people of color and/or the larger field you were part of?
