9 week virtual course
About the event
White supremacy culture is killing us, and we are marching ourselves toward it. It is so innocuous, so ingrained and automatic. Like when we say, "bless you," when someone sneezes but a million times and centuries of practice more ingrained. We can’t think our way out of this. As Resmaa Menkaem says, we have been taught to think about race, but it’s not in our thinking, it’s in our bodies. In this 9 week course, we offer tools, directions, and safer spaces to settle, process, and practice uprooting white supremacy culture within us. On the other side is the shared sense of connection we so deeply long for.
We encourage folks to come in groups of two or more. This work is best done as part of a community of practice with those you are already in accountable relationships with -- your family, friends, co-workers, commrades, and/or church, community, and social groups. This work of uprooting white supremacy culture within oursleves begins with us as individuals but must also spill over into our social lives and the systems that shape them if we are to all get free.
We have to bring folks along with us. Shifting organizational culture cannot happen when only one or a few of our co-workers is doing this work. You cannot be the only person in your family, friends, and other social groups doing this work and expect to shift hearts and minds. We invite you to stretch yourself and consider who you want to bring along with you on this journey.
