I have had an exciting idea brewing in my head for years: what would it be like to have a community of learners working on racism throughout the year, with monthly themes, activities and surprises to keep us all on the anti-racist road? June 2020 that idea became a reality and a group of us started the unlearning everyday racism membership journey. I have heard from so many members how useful this has been for them and I would love you to be part of it!
Over the last few years the time I have spent with students, in workplaces has been the most rewarding and exciting work I have ever done.
Along the way I’ve been getting DMs, private emails, requests for private meetings after workplace presentations, and private messages from people who have reached out with questions like “is there a way to have more practical action tools?”, “how can I understand and figure out white privilege?”, “how do I figure out what I might be doing wrong with people of color?”, “how can I be more consistent about my learning?”, “is there a way to go deeper with this content?”, or “how can I stay connected to this community?”
I began to understand that people were looking for an ongoing place to do their own private racism work and someplace to guide their learning throughout the year. Something flexible that responds to the needs of those participating. The more questions I got like this, the more my wheels began turning. I started to see a place where we could…
I can’t stop thinking about where a monthly membership dedicated to helping white people get better at talking about race and taking action against racism, could lead us in 1 year, 3 years or 5 years from now. THAT’S what gets me excited. It’s the progress we would all make if we all knew where we are on our learning path and what the next step specifically for us might be- that’s what fires me up. The vision is there. And that’s why I’d love to extend an invitation to you.
I want you to be part of this…
With all that said, what I am clear about is how this membership will serve all of us as we progress towards get better at talking about race and taking action against racism. That’s what excites me. That’s why I’m waking up early with my mind racing a million miles a minute.
Whether you are like Vannessa and have been attending racism workshops and reading tons of books but still feel unclear about your next step or if you are like Cecelia who has just started and is worried about saying the wrong thing and being embarrassed and wanting to hide, these monthly activities (never taking more than 1 hour/per week) can help you stay strong in your commitment to ongoing learning.
As soon as you register for Unlearning Everyday Racism, you’ll get access to the private members hub where you’ll immediately get started with the first module.
Every month I will send you an email on the first to let you know what is new that month in the membership hub. I will send you weekly to let you know any bonuses I have added, to give you a sneak peek into what is coming next month, to let you know what is new in our members community and to recognize members who are making progress.
Our membership community is a place to connect with other members, to help each other, support each other and ask for and provide accountability. I will post little extras in our community for those who like a little deeper dive. Thursdays I post a “getting unstuck” video to help you keep going when it feels overwhelming or too hard. Fridays I am live in our community to answer questions.
For the best results, we see members dedicating 2-3 hours per month to go through the material. Of course, the time it takes to implement varies depending on your ability and experience.
But the good news is that you’ll have access to the material for as long as you are a member in good standing. So, you’ll be able to reference it whenever you need, and as many times as you’d like. And, you’ll be fully supported with our private community, all of the materials in the membership hub, live Q&As and exclusive members only email connection to me.
Here’s to your continued progress, to a future where all white people are at ease talking about race and courageous in taking action against racism, and here’s to the success of our membership!
Cost is $15/Month through PayPal and of course you can cancel at any time.
Hope to see you in the membership!
I will be adding all the whiteness cards I have made over the last several years to this library. This will take a while so come back to check for new cards.
