The campus community is invited to participate in “Wrestling with Whiteness,” a training series organized by Jesuits West, aimed at developing a shared understanding of white supremacy culture, reflecting on how it lives in us and shapes our lives, and utilizing the gifts of Ignatian spirituality to prayerfully consider how we free ourselves to think and act outside of the dictates of white supremacy culture.

The series will take place on Tuesdays from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the following dates: November 10, November 17, November 24 and December 1.

Participants will learn to articulate their own story of whiteness, opportunity and privilege, and analyze how their work is impacted by implicit bias and white supremacy.  Participants will get equipped with tactics of resistance to train, organize and move other white people in the work of dismantling white supremacy.
