Understanding Whiteness and Being an Ally

Join Cathy Gallagher-Louisy of CGL Consulting to explore what it means to be a white person in a society built on white supremacy. White people who wish to be allies and advocates for racial justice must first understand how race has shaped our identity and lived experiences, even if the influence of race on our lives has been mostly invisible to us.
