Diebold, J. (2021). “We’re going to show up:” Examining the work of a white antiracist organization. Journal of Community Practice, 29(1).
In responding to the calls of generations of leaders of color, white antiracists have committed to accountably organizing their own communities to dismantle white supremacy. Yet, there has been a dearth of research on white antiracist community organizing, specifically. Thus, this study, based on principles of community-based participatory research, sought to investigate the work of a white antiracist organization over the course of a year, using focus groups, open-ended surveys, and meeting notes. The data were qualitatively analyzed, resulting in 4 categories that describe the organization’s efforts, accomplishments, and growing edges. Limitations and implications are discussed.
