The Whiteness Study Group – Who We Are and How You Can Join!

Next meeting!  March 27, 2018 at 4 p.m. (in the Meeting Library)

The Whiteness Study Group (WSG) is a self-created group of AMM members/attenders with a dedication to understanding issues of race and whiteness and facilitating ways for AMM to participate in this process.  The WSG is not a committee! While most members of this group also participate in the ongoing Education Committee’s book group on Fit for Freedom, Not Friendship, we feel both need and urgency to bring our (and the Meeting’s) study of these matters further along (as per AMM’s minuted commitments to studying this issue that go back as far as 2012).  We are engaged in studying this issue, reflecting on how it impacts our own individual, spiritual lives and the collective life of the Meeting.  We presented a proposal for how AMM may productively devote the agreed upon 15 minutes per month at MFWFB to consideration of race and whiteness.  The WSG is actively engaged in preparing these presentations, including a monthly presentation, a monthly movie night, and (as of this writing) at least two workshops open to members and attenders in 2018. Organization:  We are a loosely organized group!  However, we are meeting regularly with each meeting date/time established at the time of the previous meeting.  Next meeting! March 27, 2018 at 4 p.m. (in the Meeting Library). Interested?  Just show up!  (Email in advance to receive an agenda before each meeting.)  We also  welcome your input and responses.  You may email them to: sarahmalone1949@gmail.com.
