designed for you
Do you believe in justice and fairness for all?
Are you a white person who feels uncertain about what to do about racism?
Do you want to take anti-racist action but are unsure how to start?

Are you overwhelmed by the idea of fighting racism?
12-week self-paced experience
This course is designed for white people ready to begin or continue the lifelong process of unlearning racism and taking anti-racist actions for racial justice. The effectiveness of this experience rests on your commitment to deep self-reflection, unlearning what you think you know, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, and taking action to dismantle white supremacy.
The course is structured as 6 main module lessons with many sub-lessons. Each module lesson covers two weeks. However, lifetime access allows self-pacing to meet your scheduling needs and maximize flexibility. Each module lesson requires 5-6 hours of time. For those who choose to do all of the activities, suggested readings, and reflective activities, going beyond 6 hours is possible.
