Disrupting white supremacy requires interventions on structural, cultural, and individual levels. The intervention with the greatest potential is the ongoing work of antiracism.
Antiracism is the strategic intervention that cultivates ways of being and thinking that seek the dismantling of institutional and cultural practices that uphold white supremacy culture and systemic racism; practicing antiracist behavior is crucial to creating a world free from oppression.
The concept of “whiteness” influences various existent systems within the United States. White supremacy produces a culture of domination that conditions systems, institutions, and people to uphold and legitimize whiteness and its ways as normal, standard, moral, and universal. This conditioning disproportionately harms people of color, normalizing a culture of violence, and disproportionately advantages white people.
Moving into an antiracist/anti-oppression mindset requires learning how to unlearn white supremacist practices and implement antiracist/anti-oppressive practices in one’s personal and professional life. This is THE challenge.
This workshop is for all participants of all racial identities. Taking a somatic or body-centered approach, this workshop will help build the emotional resiliency, endurance, and stamina necessary for sustained anti-racism work.
