Mount Baker Community Club Presents the next topic in its Race and Social Justice Series.
Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 7-9pm
SEEING THE RACIAL WATER: Whiteness in Daily Life
Workshop facilitated by Dr. Robin DiAngelo
What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless yet is deeply divided by race? Dr. Robin DiAngelo describes how race shapes the lines of White people, explains what makes racism so hard for White people to see, and identifies common White racial patterns that prevent us from moving towards greater racial equity.
Dr. Robin DiAngelo is a former Associate Professor of Education. Her scholarship is in White Racial Identity and Race Relations. Her work on White Fragility has influenced the national dialogue on race and been featured on NPR, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Slate and Colorlines. Her website is www.robindiangelo.com. Dr. DiAngelo is a workplace consultant in issues of race relations and racial justice. She was appointed to co-design the City of Seattle's Race & Social Justice Initiative Training.
The workshop is geared towards adults, and no childcare will be provided. Suggested Donation $10 at the door.

OPPORTUNITY CALLS: Work on Projects with Your Neighbors and Do Good in Your Community
Our ability to have an affect on the world at a large scale is limited. But on the small scale, especially at the neighborhood level, we can have a significant effect by working together on projects that benefit the neighborhood. The Community Club's eight committees offer many opportunities to work together.
Participating on a committee is a great way to learn and practice new skills or brush up on old skills. Committee participation can also be a chance to nudge yourself out of your comfort zone and step up to leadership.
We're looking for people to work on Club communications and outreach, fundraising, clubhouse management, and event production. We also have committees working on land use and transportation issues, emergency preparedness and public safety, and the Martin Luther King Scholarship program. To find out how you can get involved, contact Judith Yarrow at email@example.com
Everyone who lives, works or goes to school within the Mount Baker neighborhood is already a member of the Community Club.
There's a whole community of neighbors participating in a wide-variety of projects, events, activities, classes and more, right here at the Community Club. There are many different ways for you to be involved:
• Volunteer - We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available. Whatever your interests, or time availability, we have something that fits.
• Parks Projects - We partner with many Parks & Openspaces in the neighborhood and often have opportunities to get your hands dirty while helping make our neighborhood the beautiful, park-like area it's known for.
• Donate - Instead of Membership Dues, we rely on the generosity of our neighbors to help cover our operating costs so we can continue to bring you all our wonderful programs & events. Donate regularly to our Annual Fund or make a one-time donation now.
