September 17, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
North by Northeast Community Health Center, 714 NE Alberta St., Portland Portland 97211
This Series Two Learning Cohort serves as the next level for those who identify as “white” and who wish to deepen their practice to abolish white dominance in themselves and the white community beyond a Series One Cohort. This cohort will focus on skill building within an active practicum model while remaining rooted in self-reflection.
Before registering, please note:
- The West 71st St. Cohort will meet the following dates: September 17th, October 15th, November 19th, December 17th, January 21st and February 18th. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all 6 of the in-person sessions and engage in homework assignments in between sessions. Sessions are set for 3 hour blocks of time (6-9pm) and meet once per month.
- The West 71st St. Cohort is categorized as a Series Two Learning Cohort. Pre-requisite: Series One Learning Cohort
- A deposit of $100 is required to participate. As we lean into our values, we have chosen to operate our business in a way that practices an active rejection of capitalism. We trust participants of the cohorts to make the decision of how much to pay for the learning received. In our industry, the typical cost to participate in a learning cohort of this length and depth would be around $500-$800. We ask participants to balance the value of the learning personally received along with financial ability and support for our ongoing work. Participants are welcome to break up additional contribution over several payments, if desired. As a white facilitator, I’m conscious of concerns about me benefiting financially from this work. I am the only person in my immediate family that identifies as white and the income I make doing this work supports my family’s well-being. Additionally, I am a strong supporter of reparations and donate a minimum of 20% of all revenue to people of color outside of my family.
- Registration deadline for the 2nd Series Cohort is August 31st, 2018. Within a few days after the deadline, participants will be sent the prerequisite homework assignment and an invitation to the online discussion group.
