$40.00 The Gifts of Conflict in Antiracism Work

Conflict is inevitable in on-going antiracism work. We live in a world that is shaped by hundreds of years of collective, structural harms and these patterns have shaped us individually. When we avoid conflict or handle it carelessly, we risk repeating the systemic traumas that we work so hard to dismantle. Conflict can be uncomfortable, messy, and challenging but with the right tools conflict can be a real gift.

“Healthy conflict is love tapping fear on the shoulder, saying, “It’s ok. I got this.”- Priya Parker

Join Racial Justice Speaker/Educator and Yoga Teacher, Dr. Monea, for this 1.5 hour workshop on the gift of conflict in antiracism work.

During this workshop, we will grapple with:

    - How do we restore relationships when we disagree? 

    - What do we do when our impact does not match our intentions? 

    - How do we develop trust across racial lines?

    - How do we keep our shared commitment to antiracism at the forefront when conflict arises?

Come and be a part of this conversation.

This workshop will be recorded if you cannot make it live.

Scholarships available - no one who wants to be a part of this important conversation will be turned away.  Please email for more info.

Donations appreciated to offset the cost of scholarships.
