Belonging In Practice
Time & Location
About the Program
Belonging In Practice first began in June 2020 in response to the murder of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020. Like so many others, we were disgusted, grief-struck, and outraged; it's problematic that it took the loss of another black life to get white folks to care, to wake up, and consider their role in perpetuating systems of oppression that were designed to keep BIPOC disenfranchised.
And yet, a year later and we continue to witness the onslaught of police brutality against black bodies. As white folks, we understand the importance of coming together with other white people to deepen our anti-racist commitment in white communities and to help build multiracial movements for collective liberation. The intention of this community space is to do just that... through study and embodied practice.
This is a space where we can be seen and heard by one another. It will not be easy work. We’re going to get uncomfortable. It will be painful at times. We’re going to be inconvenienced. Committing to antiracism and anti-oppression means making real changes in how we live our lives. It means showing up and being accountable to BIPOC communities. Be ready for this. This is not a space for performative allyship and "wokeness"… we recognize that this is a part of our unlearning.
