Deconstructing White Privilege with Dr. Robin DiAngelo: Dr. Robin DiAngelo is the author of "What Does it Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy" and has been an anti-racist educator, and has heard justifications of racism by white men and women in her workshops for over two decades. This justification, which she calls “white fragility,” is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation.


Advancing Well-Being by Transcending the Barriers of Whiteness This webinar featured leaders of PolicyLink and Well Being Trust, Michael McAfee and Tyler Norris, engaging in a deeply honest fireside chat moderated by co-author Victor Rubin of PolicyLink. These leaders share a commitment to the type of dialogue that highlights our interdependence and is a catalyst for much-needed policy change.
