About this event

Discover a new way to approach racism in America with ruthless compassion and community support.

  • Do you feel overwhelmed by guilt or horror, yet don’t know what to do with those feelings?
  • Do you want to consider yourself an antiracist ally, but aren’t exactly sure what that means or looks like?
  • Do you want to have different conversations about race in the United States, and don’t know where to start?

We affirm that Black Lives Matter. Yet, in order for the lives of Black Americans to be treated like they matter in daily practice across this entire country, change needs to happen in the hearts, minds, and lives of non-Black Americans first.

Join us in learning and doing what it really takes to combat white supremacy.

This is a space for non-Black people to do the real work of dismantling their racism. You will be invited to awaken to painful truths about the white supremacist beliefs that operate within yourself and the spaces you occupy. With radical compassion and self-acceptance, you will be guided on the first steps of a lifelong journey of dismantling these destructive and traumatizing systems of belief and power.
