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 the path together.
We're so happy you're here!
Dr Danielle Dickens is an Associate Professor of Psychology, Spelman College joins us in February to talk about the psychological toll of identity shifting (sometimes referred to as code switching).
In this interactive talk, Dr. Dickens will break down why people from oppressed groups may feel pressured to adapt their behaviors in the workplace, the benefits of costs of shifting, and how to create inclusive working environments to lessen the need of shifting by those who are marginalized.
Thursday, February 4th at 6pm PT
HOW TO TEACH YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT RACISM
Dr. Lulu joins us in February and March for 6 Sunday sessions for parents and caregivers of children of all ages.
What you'll take away:
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.
