Thank you for joining YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix in reading Everyday White People Confront Racial & Social Justice.
This book contains 15 shorts stories and every 3 weeks, we will pick a story to discuss and learn from, continuing our anti-racism work.
This book vividly presents – in their own words – the personal stories, experiences and reflections of fifteen prominent white anti-racists. They recount the circumstances that led them to undertake this work, describe key moments and insights along their journeys, and frankly admit their continuing lapses and mistakes. They make it clear that confronting oppression (including their own prejudices) – whether about race, sexual orientation, ability or other differences – is a lifelong process of learning.
Let's confront oppression together.
