  1. So interested in your collective and would love to hear more about meetings and other opportunities to get involved!

  2. Hi,

    I tried to register for the workshop on 11/10, but haven’t heard anything back, just wondering if I am registered or am still able to do so? Thanks!!


    • John, Sorry that we are just seeing your comment, after the fact. Unfortunately, we only gave out the address to folks after registration and the link for registration was sent out via our mailing list and facebook page. Feel free to like us on facebook or join our mailing list to hear of future events! //Beja

  3. Hey folks,
    I love what you all are doing! I have been seeking a group like this for some time. I’d like to attend the dialogue in July if it’s still happening. I want to get involved however I can.

    P.s did any of the group members go to the White Silence is Violence demonstration in Oakland on June 21? I think we need more actions like that.

  4. Hi there,

    Are there dates/times and locations set for the December 12th Difficult Conversations workshop as well as the upcoming winter/spring workshops? I am based in Brooklyn and am thrilled to just have come across your website in my research. I heard from someone that you might be starting to organize/hold workshops in NY as well- curious if this is in fact true and if so, how I might be able to participate and/or become involved. If that was in fact a rumor, do you have any organizations to recommend in NY (or closer than SF:) ) that are doing similar work at the intersection of whiteness and female identity? Many thanks,

  5. Hi! How do I start attending events in the Bay Area? Especially the workshop on December 3rd? Thanks so much, Nicole
