Masterclass: Anti Racism - An Act of Love

About this Elevate Masterclass: Anti Racism - An Act of Love

Anti-racism work is work of love. It's time to do "equity and diversity" work differently - that means moving towards some "Real Talk" about racism, imagining an anti-racist world, and bringing that vision into being with concrete actions.

What's included

  • Anti-racism learning is uncomfortable: Most workshops leave people filled with guilt and shame. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
  • Dave Chapelle and Paul Mooney:
    • The discomfort factor
    • Ask a black guy
  • Don't touch my hair!:... and other anecdotes people mistake for empathy
  • Diversity vs Anti-Racism: Subtle and fundamental differences
  • Commit to change-making:
    • It’s critical that we commit to making positive change ... by any means necessary
    • Grounding your commitment
    • Fear of commitment
  • Everyday anti-racism, a practical guide:
    • Skin color as a descriptor, where you are from, and more
    • Asking questions about race, and practical responses
  • Gather your tools and put them to work: Try suggesting one specific thing people in your sphere of influence can do to start
  • Who's at the table?:
    • Develop your vision of anti-racist change-making according to your audience
    • Understand the resistence
  • Never give up: You’re strengthening the foundation of love that can bring more people together
  • Practice gratitude: Celebrate your successes, however small they are, and focus on that as you build
