About this Event

Finding Freedom: White Women Taking On Our Own White SupremacyONLINE 5-PART SERIESWeekly on Wednesday mornings, March 2 to April 6

NOTE that we are skipping March 16, so the dates are March 2, 9, 23, 30 and April 6

If these dates and time do not work for you, please check out the other Finding Freedom workshops that are coming up soon on our website: www.wearefindingfreedom.org


How are we as white women contributing to white supremacy?

What keeps us from bringing our full selves to ending structural racism?

How can we move into action and convince other white women in our lives to do the same in our communities and at the ballot box?

Finding Freedom is a workshop that aims to deepen our individual and collective understanding of how we as white women are complicit with white supremacy, how we can make changes to live more deeply and consistently into our racial justice commitments, and how we can move ourselves and other people in our networks to join the fight for racial, economic and gender justice right now.

Facilitated by Christy Tronnier + Meg Stein, this 5-part series of Finding Freedom will run 9:30am-12:00 PM EST on Wednesdays, March 2nd to April 6th 2022, skipping March 16th. Please plan to attend all sessions.

Is this workshop right for me?

All women and gender-nonconforming, nonbinary and trans people, and all white and mixed-race folks, who are interested in exploring the intersection of white womanhood and white supremacy are welcome to join us. The categories of “white” or “woman” might not be exactly how you define yourself. This workshop may still be useful to you if you were socialized as a white female and/or you are perceived as one today.

We warmly welcome people of all class backgrounds. And we do not turn people away due to cost. We offer a sliding scale and also have limited scholarships available for people who need them.

This workshop focuses on United States history, context and current reality. Women from outside the US are welcome to join us, as long as you understand we will be using a US-based frame.

Christy Tronnier I first learned about the power of organizing for racial justice during backyard potlucks on warm Southern spring nights, and later around kitchen tables when the weather turned cool. What at first seemed to me to be informal gatherings later revealed themselves to be the well-organized and powerful engine of queer and radical change-making, fueled by visionaries who were associated with groups like UBUNTU, SONG, Critical Resistance, SpiritHouse, Generative Somatics, dRworks, the Stone House, and other communities striving for collective liberation. I learned that the structure of sharing meals, childcare, and other resources reflects a liberatory praxis, and that community thrives in a context of collective care and mutual aid. I learned the value of an intersectional approach to organizing and that this approach necessitated that any white folx involved remain committed to the ongoing unlearning and resisting of our deep conditioning into a whiteness borne out of white supremacy culture. During those years, I also trained as a clinical social worker, earned a doctorate, built a clinical practice, and learned to teach. After 17 years in my first chosen home of Durham, NC, I embarked on another journey and found my way to the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts, where I now live in the woods with my family. I am still grateful for, and guided by, those honeysuckle-scented Durham nights spent strategizing and laughing in equal measure. As a white, queer, mostly able-bodied, and middle class cis-being, I am deeply committed to a lifetime of unlearning and resisting whiteness, and I strive to center this commitment in my work as a social work clinician and educatorMeg Stein As a white, cis-female facilitator and trainer working in racial equity, I work often with fellow white women and within the arts. I am also a visual artist, working primarily in sculpture and social practice, as well as a lover and supporter of artists everywhere. As a member of Art Ain’t Innocent, a Durham, NC-based multiracial cross-class Southern arts visioning collective, I help generate productive conversations about how structures and assumptions within the arts sector perpetuate racial inequities. Through my community project Dirty White Matter, I invite others to examine whiteness and femininity while engaging in art-making, discussion and story-sharing. I have been a consultant in equity work with NC arts and social justice organizations and also a trainer in my work with the Racial Equity Institute in Greensboro, NC. With a background in mindfulness, I incorporate an embodied approach into my work, creating conversations and experiences that allow internal reflection and body-based awareness of how these racial inequities are living in our bodies. I greatly enjoy being in nature and spend as much time as I can hiking, backpacking, canoeing, camping and being out amongst the trees. I am proud to call Durham and North Carolina my home and am excited to invite more white women into this work.
