In Antiracism

Logo of Antiracist Work Group in black and white

This group is hosted by Indivisible IL9 at 10am CT every Sunday. This call is open to current and new members of Indivisible IL9. We value your voice and your engagement and ask that first time callers go through a friendly pre-call orientation at 9:45am to ensure you have a smooth onboarding to our video chat platform and to our current conversations.

Our Organizing Statement

We are committed to examining the ways in which systemic racism affects us all. In this group, we acquire the tools to dismantle racism and use those tools to make a more just world.

Agreements

  • What is said here stays here, but what is learned here leaves here. 
  • “Three before me” → If you have spoken, allow three other people to speak before you.
  • Come on time: join the call before 10am. Call closes at 10:10am.
  • Lean in to discomfort; we challenge ourselves and each other here. If/when we feel defensive, we agree to consult White Fragility and the Rules of Engagement to determine if our discomfort is racially based. 
  • Do any readings to the best of our ability ahead of the meeting (see notes below)

Chat transcripts from these meetings can be found here.
