In an effort to limit community transmission of the Coronavirus and in accordance with guidance given yesterday by Illinois Governor Pritzker to limit larger gatherings (and especially those that involve elderly populations), the Village is postponing all Barrington’s White House cultural events through May 15, effective immediately.

While we are disappointed, we are taking this step in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests, our performers and artists, our staff, and our community. 

We will be working diligently with our performers and artists to find mutually agreeable dates to reschedule these events this summer. Please hold on to your tickets and they will be honored at a future date. Of course, should you wish to receive a refund, you may request one. 

In the coming weeks we will be monitoring the Coronavirus situation and assessing its potential impact on future events this spring. Please stay tuned for more information.

Obviously this is an evolving situation. We will continue to keep you posted as events warrant. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 If you have questions, please contact Barrington’s White House at 224.512.4066 or

Courageous Conversations: Confronting Prejudice

February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How should we respond to discrimination when we encounter it? How do we respectfully correct misinformation or stereotypes we may hear at home, school or work? How can we counteract biases from xenophobia to homophobia? What does it mean to be a good ally or upstander? Join us at Barrington’s White House for the sixth session of A Year of Courageous Conversations.

About Our Guest:

Jenan Mohajir is an educator, a storyteller, a mother and a believer in building relationships across the lines that separate us. She is Senior Director of Leadership at Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) where she oversees the overall strategy, development and implementation of the Interfaith Leadership Institutes (ILIs). Over the last decade, she has led skills-based trainings on service and cooperation here in the United States and around the world.  Jenan is deeply inspired by the stories from her family and her faith to create change at the intersections of gender, sexuality, race and religion, and build a world where we can live together in equal dignity and mutual harmony. She lives in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago with her husband and three children.

  • Open to the public, ages 16+
