The Alliance of White Anti-Racists Everywhere, Loyola Marymount (AWARE-LMU) is a white anti-racist affinity group that supports white faculty and staff in deepening our learning about the impact of systemic racism on individuals, institutions, and society. 

For more information, please contact



Through guided self-reflection, dialogue, and collective inquiry, it promotes the development of professional practices for engaging as effective, anti-racist white people in a multiracial community that is committed to equity and pluralism. The work undertaken in the group is meant to enhance, rather than supplant, our direct engagement with people of color in the LMU community. It provides a space for brave reflection and investigation where we can challenge and support each other to grow and learn without further burdening people of color with processing our inevitable mistakes. Working with the guidance of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Ethnic and Intercultural Services, and other campus partners, it also provides opportunities to develop strategies for working in solidarity with efforts led by people of color in our community regarding issues of equity and inclusion.

The leadership team hopes to foster opportunities for dialogue and skill building on campus at each of these meetings. The group is open to all faculty and staff members and will focus on those who identify as white as we consider what that means in terms of identity, and how to work toward and advocate for an LMU community where all are welcome. We will continue wiht our successful experiment by offering a hybrid schedule rather than hybrid meetings to enhance the quality of the experience for participants.

If you'd like to attend any of the meetings, please contact for location information.
