This LibGuide is intended to provide resources for participants in AWARE groups at RPCS or for those who may want to start anti-racism groups at other schools.
AWARE stands for Alliance of White Anti-Racists Everywhere. It is an organization that exists nationwide and was started in LA. An informal group was formed last spring here at RPCS and has continued this year formally as AWARE. It is our belief that in order to challenge racism and dismantle white supremacy, white people need to unlearn racism and discover the ways we enact white privilege. Our meetings are a space for white people to figure out what it means to be anti-racist and learn to challenge racism in all areas of our lives so that the onus is not constantly on POC to educate us.
