Breaking White Silence: Training Facilitators

 Registration is closed for this event

Some friends of FAN have created and shared a curriculum in recent years using Robin DiAngelo’s work to develop a foundational understanding and framework of white identity, white privilege and dynamics of racism, to more effectively engage in anti-racism work. They are offering a train-the-facilitator session for FAN leaders who want to deepen the conversation in their own communities. The training will be offered by Karen Schneider-Chen, Cecily Kaplan and Jan Thomas on Tuesday, August 11, 7:00-8:30pm, via Zoom, so it will be available to leaders across the state. There are only 20 spots available, so please save your space soon. There is no cost for the training, but you will need to purchase your own copy of Robin DiAngelo’s What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy – (make sure it’s the Revised Edition), which is available from independent bookstores and libraries. The trainers have developed a 6-week, two-hours per session, curriculum around this text book that they believe goes deeper than DiAngelo’s mass market book, White Fragility. You will receive the curriculum and toolkit, and have a chance to learn from people who have led these groups multiple times. In return, we ask that you lead a group in your community sometime this fall. We believe this work goes well with the other critical racial equity and policy work you are doing in your communities.

If your plan changes, please let us know since we will be keeping a waiting list.
