Join us this week as we talk about the roots of racism in white culture and its impact on communities of color with Community Change Inc.'s Paul Marcus, Lead Trainer and Consultant for the racial justice and equity organization.

Paul Marcus is a white anti-racist activist, educator and consultant. He is the Lead trainer at Community Change, Inc. in Boston, MA, an organization where served as Executive Director for 16 years. Founded in 1968, Community Change’s mission is to promote racial justice and equity by challenging systemic racism and acting as a catalyst for anti-racist action and learning. His own journey has led him to continually examine the limitations the ideological lenses he caries with him as a straight, white, male in a society that structurally privileges people with those identities. Foundational to all of his work is making visible the systemic reality of racism and other forms of oppression – you can’t challenge something if you don’t know it exists. He co-taught and taught the “History and Development of Racism in the United States of America” at Boston College for over 30 semesters and has recently taught “Dynamics of Racism and Oppression” at the Simmons College Graduate School of Social Work. He has had extensive experience planning and conducting workshops and trainings for wide variety organizations and communities. He has worked with organizers and educators from all across the country exploring and challenging the role of white people in perpetuating and maintaining white supremacy, racism and white privilege. Paul lives in Concord, VT with his wife, Patricia Shine and their cat, JD.
