Why should white people work for racial justice: because it's the right thing to do? to be a good ally? or because white people have something at stake, too?

Join us for a conversation facilitated by Tema Okun, a teacher, writer, and activist who has focused on racial equity and justice for over 30 years. Building on her work on white supremacy culture, her current work is focused on clarifying the stake white people have in racial justice. She is interested in moving the needle from ally to accomplice, from helping to solidarity, knowing that white people need to live into a commitment to racial justice just as much as-- if not more than-- those targeted by racism.

All are welcome at this event (it's not just for white people).

Admission
Admission is free but tickets must be reserved through Eventbrite (linked above). At-will donations to the Friends House, a nonprofit organization, are welcome.

Public Transportation
We are located just off Boston Common, convenient to all transit lines (nearby stops: Park St., Charles MGH, Downtown Crossing, Bowdoin).

Parking
We do not have dedicated parking. For nights (after 4pm) and weekends only, we have $9 parking passes for the Government Center garage. Park in the garage as usual and purchase the validation here (cash or check preferred).

Accessibility:
We've worked hard to make our space accessible. Here are the details:

— The event space and bathroom are wheelchair-accessible.
Chestnut St. is on a hill. We are a short descent from the intersection with Walnut St., and a relatively sleep climb up from Charles St.
— We don't have dedicated parking.
— The speaker will use a microphone connected to a PA system.
— We don't have an ASL interpreter (but please let us know if you'd like to volunteer).
Please let us know what we can do to make the space accessible to you, and we will do our best to accommodate.
