A private university in Massachusetts is creating so-called “affinity spaces” for white students in order to raise awareness about white privilege and systemic racism.
Brandeis University’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) is creating “white affinity group spaces” that will provide optional “anti-racist” training for students and faculty members, the university announced on its website.
The training will consist of three anti-racism learning sessions within three weeks where participants will learn “what it means to be a White Ally and how to move to Accomplice.”
Participants will talk to each other and Brandeis’ “racial justice educator” Joy von Steiger, who devised the training, about “allyship culminating in the creation of your personal action plan to move from Ally to Accomplice.”
