Doing Our Own Work
A Seminar for Anti-Racist White Women

April 1-3, May 6-8, and June 10-12, 2005
The Center for Spirituality at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA

“…bringing our small imperfect stones to the pile…
…building an edifice of hope”*

Doing Our Own Work is an intensive, three-weekend anti-racism seminar that provides a context for white women to “do their own work” educating themselves, confronting racism, holding each other accountable, and demonstrating good faith as they seek to build genuine and lasting coalitions with people of color and other allies.

This spring in Philadelphia, Chris Paige (formerly publisher of The Other Side Magazine) and Lydia York (graduate of Chicago Theological Seminary) are facilitating the Doing Our Own Work seminar on February 18-20, April 1-3, and May 6-8.

By building a community of support, nourishing our spirits, helping us to set realistic goals, and providing space to wrestle with complex issues, the Doing Our Own Work seminar equips us for healing, renewal, and collaboration within movements for justice and society at-large.

While we especially hope to foster connections among women involved in LGBT supportive faith communities, the seminar curriculum itself is intended for white anti-racist women in the broadest sense — all are welcome.
