Black Lives Matter! I continue to check and evaluate my biases, to recognize and call out the racist paradigm I was born into and live in, and affirm the reality that racism has existed as a systemic form of resource control and abuse that benefits the few over the many; a system which benefits white people over all others. To this end, I continue to vote, volunteer, and when possible donate.
I co-founded & participate in Awakenings Wellness Center’s anti-racist study group where we study individually and come together to reflect as a group on the reality of racism. This group meets every other week and in June 2023 is beginning Regina Jackson & Saira Rao’s White Women. Our last work we learned from was Resmaa Menakem My Grandmother’s Hands and we followed Menakem’s Somatic Abolitionist 12-month Practice Book which was very impactful. Previously we worked through Layla Saad’s Me & White Supremacy, and we continue to reaffirm our intention to continue learning individually and as a group.
I continue to gather resources & educational items in this linktree (scroll to find places to contribute your voice, your dollars, your time, as well as other linktrees and documents listing resources and educational material). Multnomah County Library has audio & electronic books available such as White Fragility, How to be an Anti Racist, Me & White Supremacy, So You Want to Talk About Race, White Awake, Stamped, The Invention of the White Race, and many others. My personal goal is to educate, be humble, stay awake, be kind, be an accomplice.
