“Participating in the Witnessing Whiteness workshop was an extraordinary experience for me. As a white person, it helped me dig deeply into my understanding of white privilege, my fears, assumptions, and misconceptions about race. The workshop sessions provided a safe place to explore and be vulnerable. This workshop experience had such a deep effect on me that I decided I wanted to use my facilitation skills to share the Witnessing Whiteness workshop with others.” – Joan
