A dialogue and embodiment series to examine the relationship of whiteness, womanhood, and personal responsibility for cultivating anti-racist culture.
Accountability in Anti-Racism is a 6-part series to examine how racialization in whiteness perpetuates racism in all of its expressions (institutional, structural, cultural, personal). This program is for white identifying women (cis gendered and trans), as well as non-binary people who feel supported in a space with women. Participation includes a commitment to attend the full 6-part series, every other week, and approximately 2 hours of reviewing resources prior to each session. The intention for the series is that by its conclusion, you will have clarity in naming what personal anti-racism looks like for you, how we will each hold ourselves accountable to disengaging from the harmful norms and behaviors of white supremacy culture, and the changes we envision and commit to making in the movement towards racial justice. This program is a collaborative effort incubated by the Elevate Her Network, hosted by EmpowR, supported by the Vermont Women’s Fund, and offering reparations to the Vermont Professionals of Color Network.
