LC Reads: Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become A Good Ancestor by Saad, Layla F.

One L&C invites LC faculty and staff to join us in this 28-day challenge for those who identify as having white privilege to do the hard and uncomfortable work necessary to examine privilege and move awareness into action to do better. While this workbook is aimed at those identifying as white, all are welcome to join in this work.

The e-book is currently available for download through Multnomah County Library.

If you are interested in joining weekly discussions as you work through the book, please complete this survey regarding interests and schedules.

*The registration for this book discussion group is currently closed. We encourage you to read the book and if there is additional interest, we will organize more groups as we have capacity.
