FREE: I’m a Good Person, Isn’t That Enough?

June 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join YWCA Cambridge for a workshop with racial justice educator and writer Debby Irving.

During this workshop, Debby will explore how she spent decades silently reaffirming harmful, archaic racial patterns instead of questioning the racial disparities and tensions she could see and feel. This presentation and dialog is designed to support white people in making the paradigm shift from ‘fixing’ and ‘helping’ those believed to be inferior, to focusing on internalized white superiority and its role in perpetuating racism at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels.

This interactive workshop will include a presentation followed by time for personal reflection and small group discussion.

This event is tailored to the Greater Boston area.
