Anti Racism & White Privilege

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 were white allies. Know the power of your privilege.

Effecting change, no matter how small can often feel overwhelming.

You can often feel paralysed 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, following requests to provide virtual services 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 paralysed and ill-equipped to confront uncomfortable conversations or racist incidents no matter how covert when they unfold.

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 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 and speak up against overt acts of racism.

During this in-depth training you will have access to video, audio learning and course notes and support via 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 white privilege and its consequences in your social circles, relationships and in the workplace. Feel better equipped to confront injustices and 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. Thank you for creating this course –  Anti-racism course attendee

This course IS for you if you are tired of feeling helpless.

This course IS for you if you recognise that being frightened is OK, but that continued inaction leads to more harm and you no longer want to be a complicit bystander.

This course IS if you want to commit to be actively anti-racist and lead by example.

Taking part in this course is not for the faint-hearted.

It is for the courageous.

It requires you to prioritise engaging in this work, little and often or with full gusto. It takes consistent commitment and a whole lot of courage.

It is for those who might feel frightened, but are ready to turn fear into action

Ready to commit?

If this sounds like you, if you are ready to commit. If you have the courage to lead by powerful example and be the change you want to see in the world. I cannot wait to support you with doing this work and look forward to seeing you in class.

Change can’t wait!
