Begin Your Antiracism Journey

This 9-week introductory course dives deeply into the topics of race, identity, and racism. It allows White women to process feelings of guilt and fear and replace them with the knowledge, language and critical lens needed for antiracism. It fundamentally shifts how White women move through this world in personal, collective and systemic ways. This course is the start of a lifelong commitment to antiracism.

 

This course asks you to engage through multimedia content, thoughtful discussion prompts, readings and weekly homework (2 hrs/wk).  The course sessions are live via Zoom. Space is limited to provide high quality instruction and meaningful interactions.

 

After this course you will:

  • Articulate an interconnected understanding of your own racial identity.

  • Gain fluency with vocabulary regarding race, White identity, racism, and antiracism.

  • Observe “hidden” racism all around you including micro-aggressions.

  • Understand how systemic racism functions and how it impacts and involves you.

  • Distinguish between "not-racist" and "anti-racist" and evaluate your actions.

As part of this course, you will receive:

  • Expert facilitation and coaching

  • Access to office hours (exclusively for course participants)

  • A cohort of women learning and growing together
