Michelle Chalmers

Michelle Chalmers is a White woman from predominantly White communities in the suburbs of Boston, created by redlining and racist policies of exclusion. Michelle intentionally volunteers with community organizations and boards, including the Wellesley housing authority, World of Wellesley, Wellesley A Better Chance, and Friends of Wellesley METCO. Michelle has been a facilitator of White People Challenging Racism for 10 years. She strives every day to be an antiracist, engaging in workshops, dialogues and conversations about White supremacy, race, and racism. She hopes to encourage White people to dig deeper, get uncomfortable, and strive to be antiracist too. Michelle’s essay on the liabilities of white privilege, How White Privilege Hurts White People, is a pivotal turning point for her and she hopes it is for you too.
