An experiential approach to justice, accountability, and transformation
Facilitated by Ethan Kerr & Dara Silverman
How can we respond to the violent, daily impact of racism on people of color and explore the cost of racism to white people?
How can white people build their emotional resilience and be useful in the growing multiracial movement toward social justice?
The Embodied Equity Project calls white people together for critical anti-racism, embodied human development, and accountable community practices. Using a unique lens that moves us beyond an intellectual analysis of racism, straight into our bodies, we transform white fragility into grounded resilience and accountable actions to interrupt racism.
The workshop focuses on issues of race, privilege, and oppression through experiential exercises that welcome emotions and complexity. We offer a compassionate and challenging approach to undoing the legacy of white supremacy from the inside out so that we can sustain the struggle toward collective liberation.
In this workshop we will:
- Explore how we as white people unconsciously embody our privilege and fragility
- Practice white anti-racist praxis (theory + reflection + action)
- Be with contradictory emotions and uncomfortable feelings without fixing them
- Share confidential, supportive and challenging feedback with each other
- Commit to hold each other accountable to take specific actions to interrupt racism
This workshop is for all white people, all ages, all genders, all professions.
