by | Feb 14, 2024

Breaking White Silence Northwest is an all-volunteer project that aims to help white people gain white racial literacy, which they believe to be a keystone step in the lifelong process of building personal and collective capacity to take effective action toward racial justice.

This spring, Breaking White Silence Northwest is offering a facilitated virtual study group for white people about white privilege, white supremacy and the role white people can play in dismantling racism, using the book What Does It Mean To Be White? by Robin DiAngelo.

This is a free study group facilitated by Cathy Henschel-McGerry and Jan Bucy, limited to the first 8 participants to sign up. It will take place over seven Friday afternoons starting on March 15th over Zoom, from 4 to 5:30pm. Books are available on-loan for the duration of the study group, if needed Registration is required – please email [email protected].

Dr. DiAngelo has been a consultant, educator and facilitator for over 20 years on issues of racial and social justice. She is the author of many books and articles, including, most recently, Nice Racism. Her work has been featured widely, including the Seattle Public Library, NPR, Slate, and The New Yorker.

Breaking White Silence Northwest supports the formation of free, facilitated groups of white people studying literature on whiteness, particularly the book, What Does It Mean To Be White? by Robin DiAngelo. Each group functions as an incubator and springboard, providing brave space for white people to begin to understand their own positioning within white supremacy and to gain key resources to sustain meaningful anti-racist action.
