Agreement Principles
Because of the sensitive nature of conversations about race, we offer the following principles for the "Committing to Racial Justice" Dialogue that we would ask all participants to support:

1) This dialogue will be made up of three sessions. We ask that participants commit to attend all three sessions.
2) There will be relatively short and engaging readings that will be important to each session, so we ask participants to commit to doing all the readings.
3) This dialogue is intended as a tool to help white people educate themselves on the system of white supremacy and be effective in multiracial action.
4) The overall aim of these dialogue sessions will be to underline the ways that institutional racism exists today and actively harms people of color in the present.
5) Furthermore, we aim to recognize that white people have unearned privileges that are not accessible people of color. These privileges allow us to benefit from the same structures of institutional racism that cause harm to people of color. As such, we ask all participants to humbly and reflectively examine their complicity within larger racial systems and to participate in supporting people of color, even at the risk of making mistakes.
6) We understand that the difficult work of talking about racism can be messy and we will inevitably make mistakes. We seek to create a brave, compassionate, and honest space for dialogue.
7) We view ourselves as people who are deeply committed to life-long learning of the language of race and racism, whiteness and white supremacy.
