Gender & racial justice training for white folks going to M4BW

Training details: If you plan to attend, please register here (https://goo.gl/forms/bnUJf1RVWKCNZuK63). Space is limited so if for any reason you can no longer participate after RSVPing, please let us know.

On September 30, 2017, Black women in all their diversity will march at the center of the March for Racial Justice in the MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN in Washington, D.C. to denounce the propagation of state-violence and the widespread incarceration of Black women and girls, rape and all sexualized violence, the murders and brutalization of transwomen and the disappearances of black girls from streets, schools and homes.

Are you a white person planning to participate in the March for Black Women? Join us on Wednesday, September 27, for a participatory training to explore the intersection of gender justice and racial justice, and discuss how to show up on Saturday and take action in a way that is respectful, accountable and informed. Over an hour and a half, we will discuss the effects of white oppression and privilege, and white-centered feminism, on black women and black trans folks historically and today; why we show up as white folks; how to build active engagement in racial justice work; what allyship does and doesn’t mean; and concrete ideas for how to show up as a White person at the March for Black Women. Come with questions and please take time to read the March statement (http://bit.ly/2xohVGO), article from BuzzFeed (http://bzfd.it/2fMM0IB) and response from Black Women’s Blueprint (http://bit.ly/2wQun58).
