Location: Ventura, CA (exact location will be sent with registration confirmation)This interactive and experiential workshop is an opportunity for white people to strengthen their understanding of anti-racism and to connect with others who are doing the same. We will be covering topics such as white privilege, institutional racism, and strategies for effectively engaging in social justice movements. The workshop is intended for people who self-identify as white, and no prior activist experience or education are assumed or required.The workshop will be facilitated by SURJ-VC member volunteers. We are asking for a suggested $20 contribution to cover meeting space, food, and supply costs. Scholarships are available.
