About this Event

October 13th, 20th, 27th / November 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th / December 1st ,8th (7-9 PM EST)

We have created this 9 week course for folks that have expressed interest in our 2 day workshop but are not able to participate in a full 2 day event. We are very excited to offer this new opportunity. The course will be devoted to teaching white people shame resilience skills as a pathway to having authentic conversations about race and developing the necessary muscle to take proactive positions in promoting racial and social justice. A major portion of the workshop will assist participants in enhancing their personal awareness of racially based patterns, how they manifest, and what they look like so that we can build tolerance. Shame resilience skills are specifically designed to help white people stay actively engaged in meaningful racial conversations without surrendering to white guilt and/or shame that often stifles and smothers meaningful racial conversations.
