Welcome to the Deconstructing Whiteness Resource page. We’ll be posting resources here, check back often!
The book group starts January 13th with a book series discussion on what it means to be white in the United States. This facilitated conversation will cover the social structures of race that impact our lives, how systemic and structural racism works and what we can do about it, and deconstructing whiteness.
