What makes this experience different than other racial justice forums you have attended? First, it is structured in a deep listening format that enables every voice to be heard in a safe and non-judgemental way. Our stories, experiences and feelings are shared respectfully and confidentially with women across our chapters, with different cultural and geographical backgrounds. Second, the materials are organized topically in a progressive learning approach and provided through a variety of media so that the 2-3 hours preparatory time per week is not overly burdensome. Topics such as white privilege, the history of systemic racism, allyship, reparations, microaggressions and language are explored. Because we are intentionally focused on understanding the advantages we accrue simply because of the color of our skin, the 'tailwinds' we enjoy, the program is specifically targeted for women who identify as white. This is just a first foundational step in TTN's significant commitment toward racial justice.

Please join us on this journey! But please check your calendars and ensure you are able to make this important 7 week commitment, as you are not only committing to the time required but to your fellow classmates.
