Wishcamper Partners Contract

Overview:

Facilitate a six month white anti-racist affinity group for Wishcamper Partners leadership, staff, and guests. This cohort will support the desire of the Wishcamper leadership to engage a deepening understanding of how race is impacting their organization and work. From this learning, Wishcamper Partners will be able to answer who they are as white people and how they’ve been socially conditioned to fit in the world. Weekly homework assignments can be used to spur deeper conversations, develop new habits, and build capacity as learners and practitioners of racial liberation in their sphere of influence.

What is a “white affinity group”?

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” in all areas of their lives. Justin C. Cohen shares that white “affinity space is a place where white people can practice, model, and improve anti-racist practices.”

One of our participants put it this way…

“If you are interested in really leaning into the thoughts in all of our white minds about race, racism, and what it means to be white in America today, then a JORE Consulting white affinity cohort would greatly benefit you. You will learn so much and have your eyes opened wide and your heart opened wider. You will be seen and heard and supported, but also challenged to do more and think more.”
