This group is dedicated to creating a compassionate and supportive environment for white people at ERUUF to continue the work of dismantling racism. We will focus on examining our own conditioning and behavior, wrestling with our own internalized supremacy, and building supportive relationships. We strive to become whole, to deepen our spiritual sense of self, and to support each other on the road to healing. WAG is sibling to the Black, Indigenous and People of Color(BIPOC) group.
The White Awareness Group (WAG) meets every third Sunday at 1 pm via Zoom.
We commit to the pursuit of a deeper sense of self awareness and self knowledge with the explicit goal of expressing our deepest selves fully and authentically, to use our expanded self knowledge to transform existing behaviors and patterns of thought in to anti-racist behaviors and thoughts, to develop liberatory practices for the soul healing necessary to sustain long term anti-racist action and activism, to support each other as we experience the grief that comes as we confront the brutality of white supremacy and racism, our role in it, and its impact on everyone, to celebrate transformational healing as it occurs, to support the leadership of BIPOC wherever and whenever we can, and to remain accountable to BIPOC in our communities.
Our goal is no less than collective liberation for all.
