We are Finding Freedom
5-part Series - Online Finding Freedom: White Women Taking On Our Own White Supremacy
How are we as white women contributing to white supremacy?
What keeps us from bringing our full selves to ending structural racism?
How can we move into action and convince other white women in our lives to do the same in our communities and at the ballot box?
Finding Freedom is an engaging and compassionate workshop that aims to deepen our individual and collective understanding of how we as white women are complicit with white supremacy. Join us to make changes in our day-to-day lives to live more deeply and consistently into our racial justice commitments. This workshop teaches us how to move our networks to join the fight for racial, economic and gender justice right now.

Is this workshop right for me?
All women and gender-nonconforming, nonbinary and trans people, and all mixed-race and white-presenting people of color, who are interested in exploring the intersection of white womanhood and white supremacy are welcome to join us. The categories of “white” or “woman” might not be exactly how you define yourself. This workshop may still be useful to you if you were socialized as a white female and/or you are perceived as one today.
As a mixed-class facilitation team, we warmly welcome people of all class backgrounds. And we do not turn people away due to cost. We offer a sliding scale and also have limited scholarships available for people who need them.
This workshop focuses on United States history, context and current reality. Women from outside the US are welcome to join us, as long as you understand we will be using a US-based frame.
Finding Freedom: YES Lab
YES Lab, facilitated by Kari Points and Evangeline Weiss
Picking up where we left off in Finding Freedom, we as white women* will dream, organize, and take lots of action together. Let’s get free together, y’all.
- How do we come alive to take bigger risks for racial justice together?
- How can we use anti-racist cultural organizing in our white communities?
- Where do you need to grow in service of this work?
You must have completed Finding Freedom prior to the Feb. 1 start date for the YES Lab.
We’re still gay. We’re still in the South. And you don’t need to be.
