Being a Better Ally: White Ally Toolkit Workshop

December 16, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Sponsored by Valley and Mountain Fellowship, the Hillman City Collaboratory, Wasat Muslim Community and Kadima Reconstructionist Community this interactive three hour workshop intends to advance the cause of racial equity by helping white people to have conversations about race with each other. As the anti-racism movement has expanded, many allies still don’t have the most effective tools to facilitate honest and productive conversations about race with their white friends, relatives, and neighbors.

The White Ally Toolkit project focuses specifically on the task of helping allies – especially white ones – have more effective encounters with the 55% of white people who are skeptical that racism is a problem hindering people of color specifically and America more broadly.

Developed and led by Dr. David Campt, a national speaker and expert in the areas of inclusion, equity, conflict resolution and dialogue, this program is designed to galvanize white allies and launch them into on-going engagement that will help strengthen the local multicultural movement for racial equity and justice.

What a white ally will learn at this workshop:

What does the latest scientific research say about the keys to persuading others?
How relevant are tools of empathetic listening and non-violent communication?
How can my own racial background and perspective be used to help me engage skeptics?
What are effective approaches for strategically addressing racially problematic behaviors?
How do I make good and courageous choices about engaging difficult racial moments?
What is a good sequence of issues to cover when trying to expand a skeptic’s perspective?

Ticket prices: $30
(Reduced admission available. We do not want cost to prohibit you from attending.)
