Seattle held training for white staff aimed at ‘undoing whiteness’

Jul 9, 2020

  • The City of Seattle held a segregated training session for white staffers last month in which they instructed workers on how to ‘undo their whiteness’
  • Titled ‘Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness’, the training session was reportedly held by the Office of Civil Rights on June 12
  • One handout distributed in the two-and-a-half hour session reportedly read that ‘racism is not our fault but we are responsible’
  • Another said white staffers must give up ‘the land’ and their ‘guaranteed physical safety’ in order to be an ‘accomplice’ for racial justice
  • The Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights has not yet returned a request for comment on the alleged training program
