This course will be an exciting opportunity for us to prepare ourselves to engage effectively in the movement for Black lives. We’ll learn how to build our courage and support for doing the necessary exploration of our own racial identities, and deepen our commitment to this personal and spiritual work

Because ending an oppressive system takes all of us, there can never be too many white anti-racism activists. We need each other!

Course goals :

  • prepare white activists to be effective in supporting Black Lives Matter

  • deepen awareness of how our white racial identity impacts our social/racial justice work

  • build courage by forging relationships with each other

  • understand this work as spiritual/personal work

  • here to awaken from our illusions of separateness

  • our spirit yearns for us to find connection with each other, with the larger purpose
