WHITE ALLY 4.0: A skills-based workshop to gain effective tools for honest conversations about race with white friends, relatives and neighbors.

June 17 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Saturday, June 17, 2017
1:00pm-5:00pm
Asbury United Methodist Church
205 S. Main St. Harrisonburg
Room 208
This workshop is FREE!

Questions that will be addressed in the workshop:
How can a white anti-racist ally speak to racism skeptics in a way that is
effective and not off-putting?
What are some strategies for allies to courageously stand up for their
beliefs and avoid being stereotyped as a reactive liberal?
What do research findings tell us about the effectiveness of various
strategies for helping racism skeptics broaden their view of issues like
white privilege, structural racism and unfair treatment by institutions?

Dr. David Campt is a nationally recognized specialist in race relations
and civic engagement. During his 20 year career, he has advised many
