Anti-Racism for White People is a year-long learning community for people interested in showing up as agents of racial justice.

This course will support participants in learning, reflection, and action-taking to combat white supremacy and racism in our daily lives. Though this course is designed with the unique challenges of white identity in mind, everyone is welcome.

Each month, participants will receive roughly an hour of readings, podcasts, and videos that pertain to that month's topic, with additional optional resources for those who want to go deeper on the topic. The cohort meets via Zoom on the third Thursday of each month from 1-2pm PT, where participants will have the opportunity to learn more, reflect, and learn in community.

The work of becoming anti-racist is a life-long journey of humbly learning new ways of seeing and being.

Through this course, you will:

  • Identify the conditioning of white supremacy and its impact on your identity, perceptions, and behavior
  • Explore mindsets, behaviors, and commitments that will enable you to more effectively take action for racial justice
  • Hone your ability to have difficult conversations about white supremacy & racism
  • Gain skills to identity and dismantle white supremacy culture as it shows up in the workplace
  • Learn about the history and present-day realities of systemic racism
  • Craft individualized strategies for being an agent of interpersonal, institutional, and systemic anti-racism

This course is offered through Social Venture Partners LA (SVPLA), an intersectional community of Angelenos who see and speak the truth of racial, economic, and social injustices, and who use their power to support the liberation of all people. We are a nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, and we provide grants, training, and peer learning & healing spaces for proximate leaders of visionary social justice initiatives. All funds from this course fuel this work.

The course is facilitated by Christine Margiotta, Executive Director of SVPLA, who has facilitated this content for over 1,000 participants on their anti-racism journey.
