Amidst the long overdue racial reckoning that this country is going through in the wake of the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black and Brown Americans, the moment calls on white people to work harder to dismantle racism in our communities, our workplaces, our families, and ourselves. What does centering racial justice in transportation look like for planners, engineers, and urbanists who identify as white? This is an affinity space for people identifying as white to grapple together with our role as white people to address racism, particularly in our professional worlds. This space is organized with the explicit understanding that putting the burden on people of color to explain racism to white folks can be exhausting and deeply painful. This informal session is just the beginning of a conversation, a space to come with questions, ideas, and resources so that we can support each other in this journey. Most importantly, we ask that you come with an open mind, curiosity, and humility.
