This three-hour workshop will focus on the discourse of White Feminism in the wake of Trump’s election and the Women’s March. In this workshop we will work together to learn about intersectionality and systemic racism in the fight for Women’s rights. This event is specifically designed as an affinity space for White identifying cis- and trans-Women to be exposed to Intersectional Feminism, engage in constructive discourse, and action planning around accountability to cis- and trans-Women of Color.

Participants will be sent pre-reading and resources and an agenda for the day and will be in contact with the facilitators about their specific interests for the day. Ticket price for this event is $70 at sliding scale. For inquiries about attendance folks may message antiracismcollab@gmail.com.

We charge for these workshops to be able to sustain anti-racist programming at the Humanist Hub and support local community organizing. ARC is not currently a recipient for grant money or donations in providing needed antiracism education in the local boston area. In so doing, ARC's trainers and organizers many of whom are majority women, low-income, working class students and people of color.
