The Partnership staff and the members of the Aspiring White Allyship group are committed to the advancement of Racial Justice and the dismantling of white supremacy within our field.

This time, we will be reading “Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements,” written by Charlene Carruthers!!! You can learn more about this book here: +BOOK INFO

The discussions will encompass strategic ways to apply the lessons learned, at work and beyond, engaging those around us in radical systemic change focused on dismantling racism and anti-Blackness in our communities, UNAPOLOGETICALLY!

The Book Club will meet every other Friday from 2 to 4pm PST, starting with an introductory meeting on Friday, May 7th.The meetings will be facilitated by folks from the DV/SV field, with participants from all levels of work across our organizations, creating perfect space for conversations that address accountability around privilege and power!
