Association of White Anti-Racists for Equity

The Association of White Anti-Racists for Equity (AWARE) at Rowan University is a bi-weekly dialogue for individuals who identify as White to learn and discuss strategies to engage in anti-racist behaviors. AWARE is an opportunity for participants to become more self-aware and knowledgeable about issues and the systems in this country that contribute to, or maintain and perpetuate inequities across race. Additionally, the sessions are a safe space to develop the skills to have and promote cross racial communication and understanding. This intragroup dialogue provides the opportunity to interrogate personal perceptions regarding others and challenge any misconceptions that have been unconsciously developed. The central goal of AWARE is bringing students together to work for racial justice in transformative alliance with people of color.

 

The Fall 2017 semester meeting schedule will be announced in August.
