An important part of our work to be an anti-racist organization is examining and dismantling characteristics of white supremacy culture—in JVC Northwest’s history and present experience with volunteers. Throughout the program year, white JVs participate in a White Accountability Group throughout the year. This is our only required meet-up group, focused on learning about whiteness and its role in creating and perpetuating systems of oppression. White JVs are encouraged to be already engaging in their own learning before entering a year of service with JVC Northwest.
