2011 Unmasking Whiteness Institute

AWARE-LA is happy to announce that we offered our 3rd annual workshop series on building white anti-racist practice and community in an intensive 4-day institute designed specifically for white people in the summer of 2011.

The institute ran from Thursday, June 23rd through Sunday, June 26th, 2011 and took place on the downtown Los Angeles, Mount St. Mary’s College, Doheny campus.

This series invited white people to deepen their self awareness and build community with other white people taking up work for racial justice. Through personal reflection, small and large group dialogue, and experiential activities, this institutes invited the exploration of subjects such as:

* The meaning of whiteness
* White privilege and multiple identities
* How to resolve guilt and shame
* Systemic white supremacy (institutional racism)
* Development of an anti-racist practice and identity
