The next meeting of White Folks Dismantling White Supremacy is on November 24, 2020 at 7:15 pm via Zoom. If you would like to attend this session and are not subscribed to the email list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Zoom information for the session will be sent to this list early next week. We welcome new attendees at any time!
During our November 24th meeting, we will watch and discuss a Peninsula Peace and Justice Center program “Hidden in Plain Sight: Racism, White Supremacy, and Far-Right Militancy in Law Enforcement.” In this video, Paul George of PPJC interviews Michael German, a former FBI special agent and a current Fellow with the Brennan Center for Justice. The video publicity says, “As our nation grapples with how to reimagine public safety in the wake of the protests following the police killing of George Floyd, it is time to confront and resolve the persistent problem of explicit racism in law enforcement.” The video features a special guest appearance by Kristi Iverson!
We are calling the group “White Folks . . . ” because we recognize the need for white people to do much of the work of dismantling white supremacy. 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. That said, all people of whatever race or background are welcome to attend any or all sessions.
