White Folks Making Commitments To Racial Justice

This is a new location for the CARW monthly meeting. Unfortunately we no longer have our long-time space at the downtown YMCA. We are in the midst of searching for a consistent space for our monthly membership meeting -- we will keep you posted. === We are excited to see you all on Wednesday! Please forward - especially to folks that may be interested in getting involved / learning more about CARW Agenda Snapshot -- 6-6:30pm - Potluck (please bring a dish to share) -- 6:30-9pm - The Main Event! If you are a white person looking for ways to get involved in the struggle for racial justice, we encourage you to join us for CARW's first membership meeting of the year. This meeting is open to active organizers (Member Organizers & Base Organizers), new folks, alumni, and all that want to learn more. We will discuss the following at this meeting… --- Reflections: We hope to share with you our reflections on this transformative year (with a focus on unpacking the role white anti-racist organizing) -- ranging from solidarity with the Not1More Deportation campaign to the Black Lives Matter moment. --- Movement Building: We will share with you our approach to building dynamic, multiracial movements -- namely by building long-haul relationships of accountability with grassroots organizations rooted in communities of color. --- Action: We will share ways that white people in Seattle can take action for racial justice -- by becoming a CARW member, working on projects / campaigns guided by grassroots communities of color, as well as immediate opportunities to mobilize for upcoming actions / events. Any questions, email carwoc@gmail.com ===== Accessibility: There is free street parking, numerous bus lines (eg: the #7), and the space is wheelchair accessible. We will also ask attendees to label their potluck items -- we have little cards to write dietary info (eg: "this dish has gluten"). Fragrance :: As the space strives to use non-chemically based cleaners, however it is not 100% scent-free (eg: they use bleach in the toilets). With this said, please do not wear scents including perfumes, hair products, lotions, etc. to this event. We will provide scent-free soaps in the bathrooms, and ask that all attendees use them during this event. For further info on how to do this (http://eastbaymeditation.org/accessibility/PDF/How-to-Be-Fragrance-Free-.pdf). Childcare :: We will not have childcare present, but we will bring toys, books, and blankets (if the request was made) -- and if a lack of childcare is barrier to your ongoing participation in CARW meetings, please let us know. ASL :: Additionally, we are in the midst of securing ASL interpreters for tomorrow -- thank you to those that made this request (we will follow-up directly with you on this status). If you have any further questions about access, please contact us (carwoc@gmail.com).
