Beyond Zero-Sum: Heather McGhee on white people’s shared interest in racial and economic justice

August 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

  Showing Up for Racial Justice believes that racism is employed by the wealthy elite to make white people believe they have more in common with a white billionaire than the people of color in their neighborhoods. The truth is, white people have so much to gain- a shared interest- in fighting for racial and economic justice. Join SURJ’s National Director, Erin Heaney, in conversation with Heather McGhee, political strategist and author of “The Sum of Us,” to explore the history of strategic racism and how white people can organize their own communities away from a “zero sum” mentality and towards an understanding of their shared interest in fights for justice.
