Led by white students and faculty of the UMass community, the White Co-Conspirator Network (WCCN) is a project of the UMass Center of Racial Justice and Youth Engaged Research. As white coconspirators, we aim to imperfectly fight racism every day by unlearning whiteness & putting our power on the line for racial justice.

We apologize for any confusion around how this initiative was previously named. We welcome those who wish to join us in dismantling anti-Blackness, and racism broadly, to share the new flyer for the Center's upcoming campus-wide series: "White Allies Against Racism: How to be a Co-conspirators for Racial Justice." For more information about why we use the term "co-conspirators" instead of allies, please review the enclosed resource. And for more information about this series, please RSVP for our info session on February 10th (to be held in Furcolo with virtual options).
