The Dorothy Height Book Club will meet at YWCA Lancaster on the 3rd Thursday of every month.

This session is set for March 19 at 6:00 p.m. and we will be discussing:
White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

This is a 2018 non-fiction book written by Robin DiAngelo

Description:
A book on challenging racism by working against and understanding what the author terms “white fragility.” With a forward by Michael Eric Dyson, he writes “White Fragility is a vital, necessary and beautiful book, a bracing call to white folk everywhere to see their whiteness for what it is and to seize the opportunity to make things better now. Robin DeAngelo kicks all the crutches to the side and demands that white folk finally mature and face the world they’ve made while seeking to help remake it for those that have neither their privilege nor their protection.”

** Don’t have a copy of White Fragility? YWCA Lancaster has copies of the book available at our front desk for no charge while supplies last. Stop by the building on Lime Street to get your copy.

Racial Equity Institute

The Racial Equity Institute, Level 1, workshop (REI-1) is an intensive 2.5-day workshop representing YWCA Lancaster’s core social justice training program.

This workshop gives participants a common understanding of racism and related concepts, including but not limited to, bias, white privilege, internalized racism, and structural racism.

REI-1 is a foundation for working toward dismantling the institutional and systemic racism that is present in our lives, and in the institutions and organizations of which we are all a part.

Participants leave the Racial Equity Institute experience equipped with a better understanding of the separate work, experiences, and responsibilities of People of Color and White People. Workshop enrollees are introduced to a fundamental anti-racist, multi-cultural model which can lead to a tangible plan of action for themselves and/or their team.

Workshop participants learn through multiple modalities, including journaling, workbooks, exercises and toolkits. These tools can be used to study, question, and better understand the history, context, and impact of racism on individuals and society. For more details, or to ask questions, please contact David Nice, Project Manager, Social Justice, at dnice@ywcalancaster.org.
