In recent years, interest in race and racism has exploded. No serious discussion of these topics can begin without understanding the concept of whiteness. Whiteness and white identity refer to the way that white people, their culture and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups are compared. Understanding whiteness is at the core of not only understanding race in America, but fundamental to building a more inclusive and fair society.
 
Recognizing this historic shift in our national’s thinking, TTN Chicago is excited to offer a series of 7 workshops beginning in February called Understanding Our Whiteness—A TTN Signature Program. This"Chicago Edition" of the program is tailored to Chicago’s unique situation and will be limited to 8 Chicago members.

The sessions will be facilitated by TTN Chicago members Dahlia Ziffra and Dorothy Balabanos, and are designed to provide members who may already know one another with a supportive environment in which to examine whiteness, race and racism, with a special focus on Chicago and the Midwest.
 
Registration for Understanding Our Whiteness (Chicago Edition) is available now and is limited to only 8 members of TTN Chicago, so register today. Join us for an eye opening experience and connection with your fellow TTN Chicago members. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Dorothy at dorothyj@rcn.com .

Dates: February 2, 9, 16, 23; March 2, 9 and 16   Register above for the first session and save these dates and Zoom link provided with confirmation. 

Note: TTN National will be rolling out a number of cross-chapter Understanding Our Whiteness Workshops beginning in January. Both Dahlia and Dorothy have taken the National Program. This Signature Program will be facilitated by TTN members from the Boston chapter and will be open to members from all TTN chapters. There will be morning, afternoon and evening sessions. More information will be available in early January.
