We hope the guide is helpful to experienced social justice and racial equity facilitators who want to think through how best to implement the TWP curriculum. We also hope it is also useful to people and groups who want to add deeper attention to white privilege and white culture within their other educational, leadership development, transformative learning or community change efforts.

The guide is deeply informed from our own experience facilitating several rounds of pilots of the curriculum, plus from post-training surveys of participants and discussions with the organizations who hosted the pilots. It also draws on MP Associates, World Trust’s and CAPD’s experiences as facilitators of transformative learning, community engagement and multi-racial change processes, and as social justice and racial equity facilitators. Given that foundation, we also hope the guide is a useful way for us to share some of what we have learned about this very important, and very challenging, work.

At the same time, the facilitation guide is very much a work in progress. If you are reading this, and you end up using the curriculum and/or have thoughts to offer on the facilitation guide or any other aspect of the curriculum, please share. If you have questions or comments, please contact us.
