Next Steps

This project exists in the context of a much larger world of amazing anti-racist organizing. Please consider checking out one or more of the following:

The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond
White Conversations for Racial Healing is grounded in the analysis of structural racism taught by these folks. Their trainings (which are multi-racial) offer a concrete framework for undoing racism in our lifetimes. Sign up for a training

Constructive White Conversations
Third Wednesday of the month, 7-9, Flatbush. Contact:
From the organizer, Dan Zanes: "This is an entry point for white folks who want to begin to engage and find their way to a useful place in society as well a place for white people who are already in the work and want to continue to maintain a strong positive antiracist community. It’s not a workshop or class or lecture. We share freely with each other from a place of experience regardless of where we’re at in this....All are welcome."

European Dissent/White Allies Resource Group (ED/WARG)
Second Monday of the month, 6:10, Jewish Board of Family Serivces, 135 W 50th St, 6th Fl

A white allies group growing out of the work of the People's Institute, supporting direct action and providing a space for allies to learn and build together.

Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ)
NYC meetings begining to form
SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability.

The White Privilege Conference
WPC is a conference that examines challenging concepts of privilege and oppression and offers solutions and team building strategies to work toward a more equitable world. It is not a conference designed to attack, degrade or beat up on white folks. It is not a conference designed to rally white supremacist groups. WPC is a conference designed to examine issues of privilege beyond skin color. WPC is open to everyone and invites diverse perspectives to provide a comprehensive look at issues of privilege including: race, gender, sexuality, class, disability, etc. — the ways we all experience some form of privilege, and how we’re all affected by that privilege. WPC attracts students, professionals, activists, parents, and community leaders/members from diverse perspectives. WPC welcomes folks with varying levels of experience addressing issues of diversity, cultural competency, and multiculturalism. WPC is committed to a philosophy of “understanding, respecting and connecting.”
