Join People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB) for No One “White” Way to Organize: Conversations with White Anti-Racist Organizers, a series of 5 virtual sessions – each lasting 1-½ hours – that will take place between July 12-18, 2020. These events are part of Liberation Rising, a fundraiser for The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB).
This series of virtual community events not just for white anti-racist organizers, but also for white people who want to do something to undo racism and who may be new to organizing or to racial justice work. Each session will begin with a dialogue between or among white organizers about their journeys, and what it means to be committed anti-racist organizers.

WHO WE ARE:For 40 years, PISAB has been offering Undoing Racism & Community Organizing workshops and supporting groups and institutions as they seek to build a society free of racism. PISAB is People of Color-led and strives to maintain accountability to communities most impacted by racism.PISAB is group of white anti-racist organizers from the Northeast Region of the U.S. who are part of the multiracial collective of PISAB. We were inspired to organize this community conversation series because of our connection with PISAB, which gives us an analysis of racism plus the fortitude and strength to understand our present relationship to our past, as individuals and as a society.
