You can choose courage or you can choose comfort – you cannot have both – Brené Brown
- I know you want to learn to better stick up for yourself and others.
- To be able to navigate casual racism from friends, colleagues and indeed family members, with more courage and definitely more confidence
- But I know this can feel anxiety provoking and often means you are ineffective in sticking up for yourself and others.
- I know the thought of dealing with conflict makes you feel scared at times and it means you don’t act
- Regularly letting casual racism pass by with people you love
- I know you often get frustrated because when the time comes to act more often than not, you freeze
- I know you don’t feel confident to speak to family members about their racist views especially if they are black/ brown themselves
- I know you don’t feel confident
- And that you definitely don’t feel courageous
- If you’ve been self educating or hiding behind instagram squares up until now not feeling like you have the confidence to do this work properly, stick up for yourself as a black/ brown person without fear of being undermined, not believed and not listened to. Then this is the training for you
People often ask me how I do this work, how I am able as a black woman, to have challenging conversations about race and show up day in and day out.
The answer? Courage.
