You make better people! – Gemma T
Many of the people who helped pave the way for change during the Civil Rights Movement with Dr Martin Luther King Jr. were white allies. Know the power of your privilege.
Effecting change, no matter how small can often feel overwhelming.
You can often feel frozen by fear into not taking action with anti-racism work.
I get it. It is uncomfortable.
If it wasn’t, we would be further forward with race equality by now.
You often feel stuck by fear.
Fear of saying the wrong thing and simply not knowing enough.
Fear of causing offence
Fear of getting it wrong
These fears all have one thing in common: They lead to inaction and inaction leads to complicity and complicity causes harm
To help – I developed an online video course, so you can learn more about the power and urgency of anti-racism work in the comfort and non-judgemental space of your own home and at your own pace and so you can feel supported along the way.
This course is for you if you already have a basic understanding of what white privilege is.
This course is for you if you understand you have societal privileges, but don’t know what to do with them to actively effect change.
This course is for you if you feel like you don’t have enough knowledge, language or tools to help.
It is for you if you often feel stuck and ill-equipped to confront uncomfortable conversations or racist incidents no matter how covert when they unfold.
It is definitely for you if you want to explore anti-racism education with a British lens.
Anti-racism course – What modules are covered?
- Understand white privilege and its role in racism.
- Learn more about racism both the covert and overt, including microaggressions
- White privilege, white fragility and white savioursim
- Patriarchy – feminism and its firm role with racism
- Centring and ego
- Conscious anti-racist parenting
- Language, education and knowledge to feel empowered and confident to tackle uncomfortable conversations with people you love
- Self awareness, self-care and advocacy and how to use your privilege to effect change.
- Feel equipped to campaign, advocate or safely stand up against racism.
Please note whilst there is a reading list and we will be looking at a holistic overview of international impact of British colonisation and American slavery, I intentionally centre the black British experience in my approach to anti-racism.
During this in-depth training you will have access to video, audio learning and course notes and access to a course discussion group, you will learn how to be a better ally. You will be able to understand, identify, confidently talk about and intervene to address racism and its link to white privilege and its consequences in your social circles, relationships and in the workplace. You will feel better equipped to confront injustices and more so have difficult conversations with people you love which is often the hardest. Feel empowered to be part of the change you want to see in the world, rather than ashamed or embarrassed of your ancestors legacy.
Turn everything you know about racism on its head and be part of the powerful majority to lead by example and be the change you want to see in the world.
It is like having to take horrible tasting medicine that you know will make you better. This is one of the hardest, most empowering and most important things I have had to do.
