Becoming a Better Ally: White Ally Toolkit
This workshop is a joint presentation offered by Valley & Mountain Fellowship, The Well, Kids4Peace Seattle, and Kadima Reconstructionist Community.

Why Racism Skeptics Should Be Empathetically Listened to, and This Should Be the Work of White Allies

Do you struggle as a White person to respond in social or work situations when someone questions the reality of racism or fails to advance anti-racist work?

Many White people are at a loss and need tangible tools and skills to participate in healthy, productive, and effective dialogue with racism skeptics.

Questions addressed in this workshop include:

* How can a White anti-racist ally speak to racism skeptics in a way that is effective and not off-putting so that they stop listening?

* What do research finding tell us about the effectiveness of various strategies for helping racism skeptics broaden their view of issues like structural racism, unfair treatment by institutions, and white privilege?

It might surprise people to learn that there is increasing scientific evidence that shows that empathy-based dialogues are the way to go if you want to have a chance to change adults minds. According to this research, the best way to foster debiasing is to first listen empathetically to skeptics so they feel heard, and after that, raise experiences and facts that invite them to a broader and more nuanced perspective.

Come and participate in this vital conversation.

This workshop was developed by and is facilitated by Dr. David Campt, who is nationally renowned in the areas of community engagement, conflict resolution, inclusion, and equity. His clients have included large corporations, the White House, the US Military, and nonprofits. He is known as The Dialogue Guy.
