*** A note about this space. ***

The nature of our organization and the work we do means that this conversation is facilitated by white people, about whiteness and racism within predominately white spaces. We understand these spaces as only one piece of a multiracial effort to dismantle racism. This work and these spaces are in response to the current and historcial call from black leadership for white anti-racists to organize their own people, and provide material support to their organizing efforts.

While we recognize that the way we as a group navigate this work means that our audience is other white folks, we welcome all who wish to attend, this space is open to all. Our mission statement is below for those who want to know more.

UWSA mission: Our group works within multi-racial communities to end personal, structural, and cultural racism and build a racially just Austin. We are a group of people of European descent, who’s varying ethnic histories have been forged into one common “white” identity to perpetuate racism. We seek to undo racism in many ways, including educating ourselves on racial oppression, mobilizing other people of European descent to dismantle white supremacy, and supporting social justice organizing led by people of color communities, including indigenous people.
