White Supremacy Culture & Its Impact on Our Well-Being

White Supremacy Culture and its Impact on Our Well-Being

Thursday, May 5
6:00-7:15 PM ET

online event; open to all mentees, all mentors & program alum

What exactly is white supremacy culture? It’s not always obvious. At this Community Chat we’ll define white supremacy culture, consider its characteristics, examine how it manifests in the world around us, and discuss ways it impacts our own sense of well-being in our day-to-day lives.

We’ll review resources related to identifying, becoming more aware of, confronting, and resisting white supremacy culture, and share techniques for taking care of ourselves and our communities in the process. Collectively we will engage in a guided contemplative practice that we can always return to as a tool for raising our self-awareness and grounding ourselves.
