Do you worry that you have in the past or are currently engaging in racial justice work through a "white savior" lens? Do you know someone or an organization that engages in racial justice work from a "white savior" lens? Our current system was created for white people to buy into our superiority even in roles of "helping." In this session we will explore the White Supremacy Culture Characteristics of Paternalism and Power Hoarding. We will look into how these characteristics show up in our lives and explore ways to show up for racial justice in solidarity with the people most impacted by racism.
Saturday Dialogues support the difficult emotional work of dismantling white supremacy within ourselves and our communities in order to fortify our hearts, minds, and bodies to continue to show up for racial justice. We provide opportunities to explore internal barriers that are holding us back from living out our desire to work for racial justice and practice how to deeply listen to each other to create a culture that supports calling people into the movement from a place of love. We utilize large group and small group dialogues that are grounded in theories of social change and anti-racist white identity development. We see this space as open to any white person who is interested in honest conversation, reflection, and confrontation with race, racism, and white privilege. This space is intended to help people build resilience in order to move into a more active role in dismantling white supremacy.
