“Committing to Racial Justice:

A Dialogue Series on

Whiteness and Anti-Racism.”

Are you confused and concerned about the state of racism in our society?

Would you like to examine your privilege and learn how to better confront racism?

Hamilton Friends Meeting (Quakers) will be hosting a three session dialogue series on white privilege and anti-racism.

Through these sessions, we are inviting community members to meet and examine white racial identity, reflect on white privilege, educate ourselves about institutional racism, learn how to be allies to people of color, and hopefully mobilize each other to action.

The sessions will be moderated by Suzanne B. Spring (Director of the Office of Undergraduate Studies at Colgate, Intergroup Dialogue Facilitator on whiteness and racism) and Ryan Solomon (Assistant Professor in Writing and Rhetoric at Colgate).

Everyone who wishes to explore their own privilege is welcome, but space is limited. Moreover, because of the sensitive nature of conversations about race and the known benefits of engaging in sustained dialogue on race, we are asking participants to commit to all three sessions. The dates and times for the dialogue sessions are:

  1. Wed Dec. 6: 7 – 9:30 pm
  2. Wed Jan 10: 7 – 9:30 pm
  3. Wed Feb 7: 7 – 9:30 pm

All the sessions will take place at the St. Thomas Church Hall.

12 1/2 Madison St
