Antiracism Working Group for White Parents

The Antiracism Working Group for White Parents was founded by Gordon parents who wanted to actively support the anti-bias and multicultural education Gordon offers students by providing opportunities for white parents to examine their own racial identities and privilege, to uncover and challenge their own biases, and to develop anti-racism parenting skills.  

The group supports ongoing learning and peer leadership as a way to build white parent capacity in the fight against racism, at home, school, work and beyond.  

For the May 21st meeting, parents were asked to review this article.

The Antiracism Working Group for White Parents was formed in 2015 by a group of Gordon parents committed to making space for parents to continue learning about anti-racism parenting skills, what it means to hold white privilege, and being active in the fight against racism.  

Building on a number of conversations, including those around the 2015 Unpacking Race symposium, these parents worked with the Parents of Students of Color and the Gordon administration to create a program of activities that began in the fall of 2015. 
The 2019-2020 meetings were:
September 12th
October 29th 
January 22nd
February 13th
April 23rd
May 21st
