12 week Unlearning Everyday Racism course starts this Winter
If you are tired of simplistic conversations about race and have already spent time educating yourself about your own racism, this group is for you. This is a small group (limited to 10), 12 week course that is designed for white people who are ready to make a deep dive into their own racism work, people who are ready to have complex conversations about difficult topics (for example the role of police and if and where and how the voices of white people belong in racial equity work). The group combines individual attention, community support and group learning.
The course will begin with a one-on-one meeting with me to create an in-depth personal action plan and ends with another individual meeting to create an ongoing learning and action plan. This is an opportunity to dig for the roots of our racism.
Daily opportunities for support and resources will be available through the private facebook group. Each participant will have their own goals and desired outcomes for the course and we will practice supporting each other and holding each other accountable. We will read and think deeply together about reparations and the argument that many writers of color are making that healing from racism can’t happen without exploring this. The course meets online and once registration is closed we will come up with the best time for our regular meetings. Cost will be $300 per month.
“Practical tools rather than theoretical understanding of ways to actually work across race in a way that genuinely centers marginalized communities”
“Intentional self-reflection and action planning. I’m excited to be part of a group that will support me in examining my own racism, the ways in which I perpetuate white supremacy, and the ways that I can actively participate in dismantling white supremacy.”
“It’s not a pat-on-the-back kind of thing, but it is more of a “this is possible, keep going, we support you through your process” kind of thing”
“I feel like my trainings are too brief and only scratching the surface. I still feel like there is knowledge to unearth that one day workshops just can’t fill.”
“I feel committed to working on my racism, but I feel like I am drowning and directionless, I need a clear, easy to follow, actionable process”

Unlearning Everyday Racism 6-week course
Format: A small group of white people (limited to 10) meet weekly using Zoom (a video meeting software) to learn together and practice behavior awareness and behavior change. Together we encourage each other to be aware, accountable and to be continuously learning. Each participant meets with me to assess where they are and to create personal goals for the course.
The focus in on learning how to make our anti-racism work resiliant and focused so that life and the painful realities of the current world don’t make us ineffective or hopeless. We practice integration and action, uncovering our own racism and learning how to support each other’s growth.
Topics: Each participant works on their own goals and uses the group for accountability, support and momentum. Between sessions participants apply 5 steps for unlearning racism to a new topic using whiteness cards. Discussion takes place in the private Facebook group and during group time. Whiteness cards include how to recognize various harmful ways of thinking and behaving and activities that help us practice daily unlearning of those. Course cost is $75 per week. Registration is limited to the first 10 who sign up starting with anyone on a waiting list.
Two one-hour private consultations are included along with a private Facebook group for connection, accountability and support.
What past participants have found most helpful:
“Oh man, so much. The whiteness cards and the safe space to bring my insecurities and questions”
“Spending time in white caucus where I could ask questions and feel safe saying the wrong thing and without leaning on the emotional labor of POC”
“Being able to hear others’ stories that are similar to mine and feeling like I’m not doing this work alone, and that I have support when I’m feeling lost”
“I love the whiteness cards. I think they are succinct and helpful, and great at condensing the main points. they are great reminders and really capture the essence of what we are talking about”
