AWARE-LA is happy to announce that we are offering our 3rd annual workshop series on building white anti-racist practice and community in an intensive 4-day institute designed specifically for white people.

The institute will run from Thursday, June 23rd through Sunday, June 26th 2011 and will take place on the downtown Los Angeles, Mount St. Mary’s College, Doheny campus.

The cost for attendance is only $200 (before March 31st) in order to ensure that it’s accessible to grass roots organizers, students, and those without institutional funding. A limited number of partial scholarships are available (see our info sheet for details).

This series invites white people to deepen their self-awareness and build community with other white people taking up work for racial justice. Through personal reflection, small and large group dialogue, and experiential activities, this institute invites the exploration of subjects such as:

  • The meaning of whiteness
  • White privilege and multiple identities
  • How to resolve guilt and shame
  • Systemic white supremacy (institutional racism)
  • Development of an anti-racist practice and identity
