How is healing and anti-racism work connected? How can you identify your implicit biases, and how can you transform them?
Modern Women is honored to host anti-racist educators Suzy & Sydnee for their upcoming online workshop on Saturday, August 15th 12:00 - 2:00 pm PST. This online workshop is hosted by Modern Women (who will also be attending). All proceeds go directly to facilitators Suzy & Sydnee.
In this workshop, participants will use journaling, meditation, and witnessing to investigate, explore, and work to heal from the impacts of white supremacy in their lives.
In this workshop, participants will:
• Engage in personal reflection through various mediums to develop a deeper understanding of their implicit biases
• Explore their role in anti-racism through the context of their various social identities
• Identify barriers to their own anti-racism
• Begin to build a personalized toolbox for sustainability in anti-racism work
• Leave with prompts for ongoing reflection and accountability
We invite you to bring your full selves with all of your curiosities. We will hold space to address questions and reflections that arise.
All participants will receive a video replay by EOD Tuesday, August 17th or the morning of Wednesday, August 18th.
