Karen Blumenfeld

Karen Blumenfeld identifies as White. Following the 2016 presidential election, she signed up for White People Challenging Racism hoping to better understand what was powering the upsurge in racism “out there.” Instead, WPCR invited her to examine the racism “in here.” Which is to say, the workshop asked her to examine her own stereotypes and assumptions about race, and to understand the many ways that being White has advantaged her life—from housing to employment, to education, to healthcare. Recognizing her responsibility as a White person to help dismantle racism, Karen has committed herself to anti-racism learning and action, and to facilitating other white people’s learning and action. Karen has worked in the environmental and health sectors in the U.S. and abroad. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration. She is an active volunteer with organizations serving system-involved youth.
