This space has been created for social justice advocates and attendees of “Unpacking White Privilege in Schools and Classrooms” as a forum for sharing experiences and reflections as they work through these resources. On this page, we invite and encourage you to share your experiences and reflections, ideas and insights and engage with others in a safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversations on race.

While these resources are intended to offer a foundation on the subject of white privilege, our list is not intended to be exhaustive and we welcome suggestions to other potential resources.

With our next event on January 20th, 2018 titled “Unpacking White Privilege in Schools and Classrooms” along with both the provided and suggested resources on this page, we hope readers will (re)commit to becoming an ally in the pursuit of racial equity.
