Community Workshop: For Those Who Considered Co-Conspiring (When Allyship is Not Enuf) with king yaa
August 1, 2020 | 10am-1pm PST/ 1pm-4pm EST
4 Hour ONLINE WORKSHOP
Move from a place of guilt and shame to really stepping up how you use your body, voice and privileges to enact meaningful structural changes.
The focus is for both well meaning whites as well as cisgender, heterosexual folx who are unable to continue safely attend marches and share “woke” memes on social media anymore but have a burning desire to take actionable steps as a co-conspirator to disrupt racial and gender injustices and place their privilege at risk to support marginalized groups.
