Welcome! Transforming Privilege is dedicated to those committed to learning about their own privilege, white supremacy and racism. We curate and create resources to assist all of us on our path to leading actively anti-racist lives.
This space is diverse and inclusive, rejects othering of all types, and amplifies the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color). We see the violence of white supremacy and racism and the trauma it causes. We are working towards a more equitable future.
The work to be actively anti-racist can be uncomfortable, make us question our current belief systems and may even require us to look at our life choices differently. This community supports and holds each other accountable as we walk our paths together.
We're so happy you're here!
We're packaging up past Transformation in Action events that go as well together as community and connection, as antiracism and anti-othering.
The Heart Package pairs 2 amazing events with guests who speak from their hearts on how to live more from ours. They tie this vital heart work to antiracism and anti-othering efforts and activism. It's how we keep getting up each day to continue the process of unlearning and learning. And engaging each other with love for deeper more meaningful connections.
We hope you will join Dr. Broderick Sawyer and Antesa Jensen as they share their brilliance about heart healing and listening.
By being willing to look inward. Shifting our gaze from the obvious racists "out there" to the origins of white supremacy in our own lives. Author and educator Rachel Ricketts advises that you're not ready to do the work if you're not ready to feel uncomfortable. So let's get uncomfortable together.
