Are you a white woman (or white man) that considers yourself to be an ally to Black Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)?
I’ve created this Check Your Privilege workshop as a tool to inspire, support and educate you as you take your anti-racism work to the next level. Many well-meaning white allies have had the intent to help, save, give back and fight to end racism. In order for your efforts to truly be effective and intersectional, there is deep inner work that needs to be done in order to uncover, make conscious, and own the insidious ways that racism exists inside of you, as it does in all of us.
This Check Your Privilege workshop is an opportunity for you to:
– Unpack your White Saviorism and learn how systematic racism benefits you in your everyday life
-Take a guided journey into your relationship with power, privilege, and racism
-Identify savorist behaviors that negatively impact BIPOC and learn to react beyond getting caught up in White Guilt, White Fragility and White Exceptionalism.
-Practice potentially awkward or racially charged conversations you’ve been nervous to have and receive feedback
– Learn how to continue educating yourself, become a resource to other white people and find ways to integrate anti-racism work into your daily life
