How does white supremacy get in the way of coalition-building between communities of color? How does the perceived proximity to whiteness impact the way we view not only ourselves but people of color (POC) of other races and ethnicities? How can we get past it and create solidarity?

Join EPIP's first People of Color Network (PCN) regional gathering in Philadelphia in partnership with EPIP Philly. During this half-day event, participants will partake in a candid conversation about the barriers to building relationships across communities and the impact that can have on our day-to-day work. 

Facilitators from The BIPOC Project will lead a workshop entitled For Colored Folks Who Consider Our Mutual Liberation Is Enough, that will help participants explore personal challenges, build inter-group connections, and create practices and commitments for building anti-racist POC solidarity.

This gathering is open to EPIP members and non-members of color in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
