Charis Books and More/Charis Circle says
This is the first meeting of a new group designed to support the ongoing development of white parents of white and multiracial children who are seeking to unlearn and dismantle white supremacy within their families, schools, neighborhoods and faith communities. Parents of color, especially those who are co-parenting with white people, are welcome to attend and participate if desired, however the aim of this group is for white parents who have an expressed desire to develop tools and skills to teach themselves and their children how to fight systematic racism. We have chosen to construct this group in this way as the direct result of multi-racial conversations about the need for a place for white parents to process their own racism and internalized racial superiority without burdening people of color with the processing of white folks' feelings. This group will stretch and grow to meet the needs of its attendees. It assumes best intent, an intersectional feminist approach (we all live at the intersection of multiple identities), and an understanding that white people must take the lead in dismantling white supremacy. This group is for parents of children and teens of all ages, though we may end up splitting into age affinity groups as the group grows. It will be initially facilitated by Shannon Gaggero, author of the blog “A Striving Parent,” and Elizabeth Anderson, Executive Director of Charis Circle, with the expectation that facilitation will rotate as the group grows. If you have ideas, questions, concerns in advance of the first meeting, please email Elizabeth@chariscircle.org.
This is a Charis Circle Whole Children Strong Families Event; the suggested donation is $5.
