White Privilege Book Group
The White Privilege Book Group will meet again on Tuesday October 20th (third Tuesdays) 5-6:30. After a year and a half of reading and sharing together, we are going to reflect on what we have read, how it has changed us, and where we are going. Many Friends have been delving into white privilege and anti-racism learning. There are so many resources beyond what our group has covered. We invite any of you to join in a conversation on the 20th.
Some questions to consider:
How has this reading and learning impacted my life at Friends Meeting at Cambridge?
How has it changed my interactions in my day-to-day life?
Are there events or relationships that I handled differently because of what I learned?
What do I need to take a next step? What would that step be?
