On Saturday December 12, members of Impact including Carl's mother, Donna attended the closing ceremony of the Anne Braden White Anti-Racist Program at the First Unitarian Church in Oakland. Impact member Carl Patrick attended the 4 month training which consisted of understanding white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, heterosexism, imperialism, antisemitism, and the state. The evening consisted of speakers from organizations such as Climate Justice, POWER, and Critical Resistance to name a few; live music from members of the Catalyst Project; a closing ceremony; and a banquet with the Brass Liberation Orchestra delivering the serenade.

Let us congratulate Carl Patrick for his participation of such a project on white anti-racist leadership and training for a vision of collective liberation.
