Upcoming Workshop from the Center for the Study of White American Culture
Transforming White Organizational Culture
Live, Interactive Online Workshop
3-Part Series: March 30, April 6, 13, 2022, 7-9 p.m. EDT
Many professionals and organizations know something about “white privilege,” and maybe “structural racism,” but fail to recognize how their organizational culture embodies white cultural values, practices, norms, and expectations. What appears to be “business as usual” and “the way things are” actually reflects unexamined white cultural values which are often problematic and limiting. Learning what this means and what to do about it are key skills in light of the persistence of white organizational culture.

FCNL March Quaker Changemaker Event:
Voting Rights, Racial Justice, and the Quaker Call to Action
March 30, 2022, 6:30-7:30 p.m. EDT | ONLINE
FCNL and Friends have long advocated for equitable access to the ballot box. We believe our democracy—like Quaker faith—needs all our voices to thrive. The right to vote is under attack. In the United States today, far too many people—especially people of color—are facing restrictions and barriers to their voting rights, reminiscent of the Jim Crow days. As state legislatures continue to enact voter suppression laws, Congress stalls the national voting rights debate, and the midterm elections approach, how can we ensure everyone’s vote counts? FCNL’s Director for Justice Reform José Woss and local voting rights advocate Jaycee Brown will dialogue on their efforts to expand access to the ballot box through policy advocacy and local organizing. FCNL’s Bobby Trice will moderate the conversation.
