White Allyship Circle

Join an open monthly circle with white-identified people for shared learning, dialogue, and practice to strengthen your capacity to show up as an ally.

To engage more effectively in our work of collective liberation and dismantling white supremacy, we will reflect on different themes related to whiteness, privilege and allyship through readings, discussion and interactive activities. These circles are offered through Thrive East Bay in service to growing meaningful community and creating a just and flourishing world for all.

September 17: White Fragility and Resilience Practices
October 22: Microaggressions and Cultural Appropriation
November 19: Decolonization and Difficult Conversations at Thanksgiving dinner (and beyond)
December 10: Allyship and Accountability

***In order to deepen the container of trust and community, consistent attendance is strongly preferred.

RSVP REQUIRED: If you’re interested in being part of this circle, please email Jean Milam at

TIME: Mondays from 7 - 9pm

COST: Donation of $10-$20 requested. No one turned away for lack of funds.

LOCATION: TBD in downtown Oakland
