Spiritual Activism: How to Discuss Race and Racism


It's 2018 and racist misogyny is still every.damn.where. How can we effectively address it? What can we all do to be part of the solution? This session is an opportunity for all hue-mans to come together and learn how we can use spirituality to unpack white privilege, heal the wounds of internalized oppression and actively contribute to lasting racial justice. Expect curated discussion about: the meaning of spiritual activism, unpacking your role in maintaining white supremacy, addressing the harm/struggles/frustration re discussing race and racism (especially for and toward POCs). Folks will leave feeling empowered in their journey to better show up for themselves and the collective, and most importantly, in supporting people of colour (particularly Black and Indigenous women).
