Dismantling Racism workshop at the Quaker Intentional Village–Canaan

From:  Noah G Palmer noahgpalmer@gmail.com

The Quaker Intentional Village – Canaan will host a series of workshops entitled Dismantling Racism: Building Capacity for White People to Understand Racial Injustice. The first workshop: Identifying Whiteness will be held Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 7:00 -8:30 PM, at 235 Bradleys Crossing Rd, East Chatham, NY.

The Quaker Intentional Village-Canaan (QIVC) will host a series of six monthly workshops from a proven curriculum to build the capacity for white people to be in solidarity with people of color.   This curriculum was developed to create a space for white people interested in being effective allies with people of color in the work of dismantling racism and undoing white privilege. This process is designed for white people to go through this experience with other white people, and support each person wherever they are on their journey.  The series aims to empower people to be more effective allies in partnerships across racial lines.

The Quaker Intentional Village-Canaan is a community of seven member households and several other residents, living close to the land on 135 acres of mixed woodland and pasture.  We strive to live spirit-focused lives that are simple, sustainable, and joyful, benefitting from and enjoying our close connections with each other and the land.  While not all members identify explicitly as Quaker, the community seeks to follow Quaker testimonies and uses Quaker worship-based decision making processes.  We welcome diversity of all sorts.

The workshops are free and open to the public, for one or more of the sessions.  Refreshments will be served.  RSVP’s are requested but not required to info@qivc.org.  For more information call 518-392-0289 | www.qivc.org.
