ONLINE • Monthly February – July
This will be a monthly group gathering focused on supporting our individual and collective work of anti-racism. We are creating the opportunity to be in community to share discussion and accountability to the ways that whiteness operates within us and our communities and to maintain strength and commitment in dismantling white supremacy. Each session will include some meditation practice, as well as check-ins and discussions around prompts specifically to explore the ways we are working with this in our daily lives. Additionally, we will each have small triad accountability check-ins between sessions to deepen into our commitments together.
This is a 6 month commitment – with the opportunity to continue for an additional 6 months in June. Prerequisites: completed an iBme white anti-racist course or commensurate experience with other anti-racist trainings/courses.
- A monthly discussion/accountability group focused on strengthening white activism in iBme’s community/network.
- Some practice but more like a monthly check-in/exploration that will keep us engaged with the work of undoing whiteness.
Available to anyone who has taken our courses, or commensurate experience – (application to demonstrate)
Sliding scale. 25% of all program fees will go back into our Communities of Color scholarship fund.
