Breaking White Silence facilitator training: Saturday, 2-4pm

Breaking White Silence project: White people for Racial Justice and Social Justice, a project of the PNA, is designed to educate white people on the structures and patterns of racism. One facet of this project is forming free, facilitated study groups to read and discuss Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy (Revised Edition). Dr. DiAngelo is a race and social justice educator and author of the 2018 New York Times best-selling book White Fragility. Her work has been featured at the Seattle Public Library and in SalonNPRSlate, and The New Yorker.

Come to this training session if you are considering facilitating a study group of any size, in private or public settings. Please RSVP (see below) and read through the Facilitator’s Toolkit before the training session, which you can download here.

This session will be an interactive nuts-and-bolts training and assumes familiarity with the toolkit, as well as the project’s history and some core understandings about racism.

For more information or to RSVP for the training, please contact Cecily at cecily@phinneycenter.org.
