A New Course! Embodying Antiracism
A Conversation & Course for white folks
To develop analysis, stamina and resilience
It is common that when white folks “wake up” to the realities and pervasiveness of racism, they want to move quickly into action.
And yet without understanding that antiracism is an inside job first, they can cause harm without understanding why.
Good intentions aren’t enough.
Even in urgent times when there is so much to do, people who are new to antiracism work need to slow down, develop skills of self-awareness, analysis, and emotional stamina and resilience.
This new course is designed to support white folks who understand that being antiracist goes beyond book clubs, social media posts and voting, but don’t know quite know how to move from awareness into action that is aligned and sustainable.
We are here to help.
A Conversation & Course for White Folks
This live 5-session course is for people who want a place where they can develop their analysis, stamina and resilience as antiracists.
It’s for folks who want to build an antiracist foundation to effect change within their spheres of influence and who are coming to understand that the foundation isn’t built by taking action “out there” or from an intellectual understanding that comes from reading, although antiracism does involve those things.
This course is designed to support people in strengthening their influence in their most powerful sphere: within themselves. Self-compassion and community will be two of the most powerful allies on the journey.
Join us for instruction, brave conversations, discomfort and community.
