The author of White Fragility, Robin Diangelo, an academic who has been involved in anti-racism training, writes about the ways in wich whites absolve themselves from improving racism in our society by using defensive strategies that allow them to maintain the status quo.  These strategies include statements, beliefs, and assumptions that the author groups under the term “white fragility.”  She shows the reader what these assumptions are and how to change these assumptions to tackle racism more effectively.  If you are interested please email the office at admin@firstparishcohasset.org and leave us your name and email and cell contact info.

The class will run for 1 hour via ZOOM, once a week for 7 weeks, on consecutive Tuesdays, beginning October 13 and ending November 24.

The sessions will be co-facilitated by Rev. Bob McKetchnie and Christine Allen.
