The Dismantling White Supremacy topic on Jan 25 is: A City’s Step Towards Reparations

On March 26, 2021, Evanston Illinois became the first American city to approve a compensation program intended to address historical racism and discrimination.  It looks like several other U. S. cities, as well as some states, may follow suit. (California is one). At our next meeting. I’ll give a brief introduction to some issues related to reparations, and we’ll listen to a New York Times podcast that tells the story of Evanston’s decision. We’ll end by discussing the choices made in Evanston and exploring our own thoughts and feelings about reparations.

Zoom information for the session will be sent to the group list early in the week.  If you would like to attend this session and are not subscribed to the email list, please send a request to join to:   We welcome new attendees at any time!

Dismantling White Supremacy meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month.

All people of whatever race or background are welcome to attend any or all sessions. We call the group “White Folks . . . ” because we recognize that the work of dismantling white supremacy is for white people to do. It’s also important to have anti-racism learning spaces for white folks, where they can grapple with new ideas about racism and speak candidly about their fears and misconceptions. It can be painful for people of color to witness these conversations, so we have created this space apart from the main body of the congregation.
