Tips for getting the most out of Transforming White Privilege:

  • Read pages 1-8 of the participant handbook before the session starts. This provides helpful background, setup, and expectations as we move into a two-day learning session.
  • Worksheets from the participant handbook will be referenced. You will want the sheets readily accessible, whether in electronic or print format. The pages used are as follows:
    • Module B – pages 9-11
    • Module D – pages 12-13
    • Module E – pages 14-17
    • Module F – pages 18-20
    • Module G – pages 21-22
  • The modules presented during Fall Conference are only the first half of the training. The rest of the training will be offered in a similar schedule on Monday-Tuesday, October 5-6. RSVP for the second half the training
  • Additional TWP trainings will be offered later this fall/winter with the intent to invite teams from congregations to participate. Dates and times (evenings) will be published at a later time.

Action Steps

  • Create a 30, 60, 90-Day Plan
    • Set a goal: How many one-to-ones?
    • Build a Team: Who else is affected by this problem?
    • Have a meeting: set goals
  • Research and learn more: Is this already being addressed in the community? Are there BIPOC leading or involved in this? Don’t replicate, support
  • Build public power by learning about the systems from local elected officials.
  • Is it time for action
    • Does the problem affect many people?
    • Is it immediate? (or is just sensationalized?)
    • Does the problem have someone who can fix it?
    • Is there a testimony?
    • Can the issue be easily explained in 2-3 sentences?
