Examining White Supremacy in Intentional Community

July 7 @ 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT virtual event for the public

Most intentional communities are predominantly if not entirely white. Even if this isn’t intentional, this isn’t an accident or coincidence.

This workshop is open to all participants but is geared towards white people.Find out more »
