Webinar Series: Lifelong Pledge (7/17-8/14)
July 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This 5-week webinar series will explore our Lifelong Pledge. The pledge was birthed from Jomo’s set of requests for white people who want to authentically engage anti-racism work. The pledge then became Rebecca’s personal commitment and at the end of every cohort, we offer the pledge as a map for participants going forward. Rebecca wrote an article titled How Shall We Respond which centered on the pledge as she processed her own experience to viewing When They See Us. The article surfaced the need for white people to respond in tangible ways while we continue to process what we learn about ourselves. We invite you to join us as we fuel connection to one another and deepen our practice to abolish white dominance.
