Consciousness Raising: Dismantling White Feminism within NOW

June 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

 

Hosted by our friends of Mass NOW.

Join us on Tuesday, June 30th 6:00 – 8:00PM for a consciousness raising on dismantling white feminism, starting in the National Organization for Women!

In honor of Mass NOW’s 50th anniversary we are going back to our roots by hosting intimate consciousness raising discussions in living rooms across the Commonwealth – and now on Zoom! Over snacks and wine, we strengthen our personal narratives and educate our communities about our priority issue areas. No expertise necessary!

This upcoming consciousness raising event is about dismantling white feminism. “White feminism is the label given to feminist efforts and actions that uplift white women but that exclude or otherwise fail to address issues faced by minority groups, especially women of color and LGBTQ women.” According to Dictionary.com.

Just like we ask our members to hold their elected officials, workplaces and institutions accountable, we have to model what that looks like in our own organization too. Read our recent statement on what this look likes for Mass NOW on our website and reading these resources from SURJ to inspire our conversations.
