What we're about

We are anti-racist individuals. We recognize that racism comes from within those of us who are white. We want to work with each other to help our personal work.

We will begin watching: Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s video: "White Fragility" -

together.

While confronting racism in others is important, we need to work with each other. Guilt and guilt tripping is not helpful. Where we are non-white, we have no responsibility to educate white people. Our goal, when white, is not to “feel better” but to grow.

Where the group will move after discussing "White Fragility" will be decided by the group as a whole.

Chicago Anti-Racism Meetup - Introductions

Second Unitarian Church

I hope that at least 3 of us will make it to the June 9th Meeting. IF, we have three or more attendees, we will have the base, to try to build a lasting group. Such a group has the potential of helping us grow and do much more to help both ourselves and others. Thanks! I hope to see you then/there! IF, we get the necessary support, we will decide where to move in the coming months, sharing with each other.
