Join the MRC in a frank conversation about what it means to hold whiteness, how it can affect one's perception of the world around them, and how one can use the privilege of whiteness to uplift those oppressed by racism.
Note: this conversation is open to all members of the community, but we intend for this to be a space where white and white-passing people can show up and do the work to explore their own identity, and think about ways in which they can support the people around them who don't hold the same (perceived) racial privileges.
