Embodying Antiracism: A Conversation and Course for White Folks

Embodying Antiracism Community Circle

A community and an ongoing conversation devoted to culture change

 

In Embodying Antiracism, we grew in our understanding of systemic racism. We began to move from an intellectual understanding of racism (and other -isms) to a deeper knowing and understanding that we are socialized to perpetuate hierarchies…unless we disrupt this unconscious patterning.

 

We developed a shared language, studied various frameworks, and pushed ourselves to connect authentically.  Each one of us who participated knows that anti-racism is an individual practice that must be done in community.

 

And so, knowing that “the work” is lifelong, we are ready to take the next step: committing to a community that centers “the work.”

 

This work is impossible to work alone.

This is a practice.

Let’s do it together.

Embodying Antiracism Community Circle

As community we will:

  • deepen our understanding of our role as culture changers
  • hold the tension between our desire for transformative action and our current skill level

  • identifyf and embrace the unique way each of us shows up

  • return again and again to our innermost spirals of patterning to weaken and dismantle the cycle of white supremacy culture socialization
  • Meet one another (and ourselves) with compassion, humility and honesty
  • Offer one another (and ourselves) generous accountability
  • Work together to deepen our analysis, become more skilled and resilient in the work

 

Excited to link arms in this life-changing work.
