At this time in our nation, we are witnessing an alarming resurgence of white supremacy and state-sanctioned violence. It is imperative that those of us who are white do the deep work required to claim and embody an anti-racist identity, understand the privilege we carry, and interrupt racism where we live, work, study, and volunteer. 'Doing Our Own Work' helps white people move through places where we often get stuck, so that we can step up with courage, clarity, humility, and compassion to participate in movements led by people of color and help move other white people to greater anti-racist awareness and action.

If you are a white person who is ready to dive deep and come up stronger for the work of racial justice, join us!

Cost
$475 includes program, resource materials, lunch, snacks, and beverages for all six days. Scholarships and/or time payment plan are available. We are committed to making this seminar financially accessible for all who wish to participate.
