About me: Your course creator
What I believe
Above all else, I believe my academic work is meaningless without contributing to social justice. My activism stretches back to 1998 when I first started facilitating white anti-racism groups focused on ally action. This course is part of my own ally journey to advance anti-racist action. More on my academic background below.
