Join us on April 6th from 12:00pm-1:00pm for a fair housing presentation: White Moderation is White Supremacy
In this training, we’ll explore the ways in which the “white moderate” that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. warned us about over 50 years ago shows up all around us at the local and national levels. We’ll connect this to the white supremacy culture of today, and take a deeper look into the mechanisms of white supremacy and how they play out in communities and organizations.
