So you've realized that as a white woman you've got some work to do personally and socially to confront racism and you desire to use your voice for racial justice. That's fantastic! 

And you know you want and need to do this "work," but don't know where to start or how to begin. Your eyes have been opened. You've read some books and have started to have some conversations yet, you still feel stuck on what to do next. You struggle between being called out and called in and maybe even feel paralyzed. You're not making much traction and you know your inaction is not the place you want to be in. 

You might feel some shame or guilt. You want to move your feet and take action, but you worry you might make a mistake or offend someone. You fear being called out. Does this sound like where you are in your social consciousness journey? Are you at the crossroad waiting for directions? Do you feel stuck in real or perceived shame? Are you ready to do the hard work to figure this out?

Are you ready to learn the skills to confront racism personally and socially? - THIS is the right workshop for YOU! 

Listen. On the journey of confronting your own racism and socially, you WILL be called out, called in and called forward. You will experience shame whether it's real or perceived. You will have to deal with your guilt. You will be afraid, make mistakes and offend along the way. It's part of the process. It's all supposed to happen on the Journey to Allyship. 

And yes it will be emotional. It will be hard. You will be confronted and challenged. And you will push through it and thrive because you must. While you are having an internal battle within yourself on what to do - Black and Brown folks are trying to survive racism and oppression every day. They don't have time for you to take your time figuring it out. The time to take uncalculated, messy, imperfect, scary, emotional ACTION is now. 

Deep down inside you also know that doing THIS work is just as much about saving yourself as it is about liberating others. And if you desire to do THIS work to be seen as a "good one," THIS is not your journey. You MUST know that your liberation from racism is directly tied to the plight of humanity. And your desire to take this journey is one beyond your own selfish needs. 

And if you're ready to dedicate yourself to confronting and eradicating racism personally andcially, no matter what, then this workshop is perfect for you. If you don't know... "asking" people of color to teach is a no-no - the ask and expectation to do so is a racial microaggression. I realize this is YOUR work to do. I also realize when people are willing to listen and learn the teacher must teach. - I'm ready, are you?
