at the venue called Threshold, 2717 Atwood Ave., Madison WI
Join us for an intimate interview and facilitated discussion with Sara Alvarado and Tanya Geisler: white women facing their racism.
We can’t do better or be better until we go within and get truthful about whiteness. We are offering you a real and raw look at our own journeys and a facilitated discussion to help you deepen into your anti-racism journey.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at: https://alvarado-geisler.eventbrite.com. Ticket fees are to offset hard costs and any profit will go to a local organization (to be determined soon).
Do you identify as white?
Guess that leaves out Elizabeth Warren and Rachel Dolezal.
The intentions of this exclusive event, which is for women who identify as white, is to provide a brave and reflective space for sharing our stories, challenging ourselves, and inspiring change as we put privilege into action in service of Black and Brown women and our desire for racial justice in the world.
We will use story, truth-telling, meditation, dance, mindfulness, and dialogue to encourage personal growth and a deeper commitment to our anti-racism work. Further discussion will focus on defining and acknowledging racism, whiteness as a social construct, and the white savior complex with the intention of addressing the fear, harm, and separation they cause.
