WHY IS THIS FOR WHITE PEOPLE?
As white people, we need spaces to ask questions, work through ideas, feel, develop skills, and celebrate change - with each other.
Ali Michael and Mary C. Conger offer that a white affinity group
"Is a place for white people to examine what it means to be white, to critically reflect on themselves and their actions, and to work to identify and confront racism"
Justin C. Cohen shares that a white...
"...affinity space is a place where white people can practice, model, and improve anti-racist practices."
