White people: stand up

a week of action against racism

Racism and white supremacy, these aren't fun topics to discuss. But we can't avoid it any longer. Every day we stay silent, every day we look the other way, every day we don't take action, people suffer and lives are lost. White people, it is time for you to stand up and own up to the system created by us, for us, and maintained by us, at the expense of people of color. Are you ready?

Take your stand

Are you making the commitment to stand up against racism? Are you making the commitment to become an ally? 

Allyship means standing with, and advocating for, marginalized groups that you do not belong to. Allyship is not about your personal convenience or receiving recognition for your actions, it is about using your voice and every tool at your disposal to advance equity and social justice.

Evolve: ANti-Racism training part 3

Becoming an Anti-Racist Ally is a big step, and it is not a one-time decision. Being an ally means making decisions every day about whether you will stand up, or stay silent.

In part 3 of Anti-Racism Training​ we will discuss how to be an ally, knowing when to step up and when to step back, tone policing, emotional labor, how to have difficult conversations,  and how your decisions to become and anti-racist ally can impact your outlook on the world and your relationships.
