Strategies for Moving from Shame to Action for White Racial Justice Advocates

An online workshop with Molina Consulting and Mariposa Education

For many white people who are working for racial justice, shame and guilt can get in the way of meaningful action. Early messages about race and racism can evoke shame responses that trigger defensiveness, anger, frustration, aggression, and, ultimately, inaction on important work for racial equity. Join us to explore sources of shame relating to race and racism and learn concrete strategies to navigate shame in healthy ways so that white racial justice advocates can support one another to process emotions and feelings in order to become more whole, while centering the critical work of building a more equitable and just world.

This workshop is intended for people who identify as white. If you are unsure about what that means or have questions, please contact us at [email protected]
