From Apathy to Action - Online

This transformation of consciousness class will include discussions and videos on what we can do to move ourselves and this country from systemic racism to systemic love.

This will be explored through discussions, videos, and journaling.

What can participants expect?

  • Awareness that racism is real and a problem in the United States of America.
  • Recognize that racism impacts and harms everyone, without exception.
  • Acknowledgement that:
    • ...as a White person, I’ve played a part in racism, and benefited from white privilege and white supremacy, even if I didn’t realize it.
    • ...as a person of color, I may have negative ideas about White people and the races of other people of color.
  • Review American history, especially what we weren’t taught in school about racism.
  • To become an aspiring Anti-Racist, and to commit—now that I know better—to do better every day. This includes having conversations about race and taking action.
  • Learn actions and steps to interrupt/end racist practices, and options to do so.
  • Be aware that every time I leave my home may be a time I’m called to action.
