Antiracism Working Group for White Parents

The Antiracism Working Group for White Parents was founded in 2015 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 and discuss their own racial identities, privilege, cultural backgrounds and related parenting questions.  

The group focuses on self-discovery and peer leadership as a way to build white parent capacity in becoming active in the fight against racism - at home, school, work and beyond.

RSVP below for the April 24th meeting

The Antiracism Working Group for White Parents was formed by a group of Gordon parents committed to learning about anti-racism parenting skills and white identity development, and being active allies 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 2018-2019 meetings will be:
