SXSW Presents Spiritual Activism: How to Discuss Race & Racism

As an invited speaker at SXSW 2019 I am thrilled to present my renowned Spiritual Activism workshop to conference goers in Austin, TX.

It's 2019 and racist misogyny is still every.damn.where. How can we effectively address it? What can we all do to be part of the solution? This session is an opportunity for all hue-mans to come together and learn how we can use spirituality to unpack white privilege, heal the wounds of internalized oppression and actively contribute to lasting racial justice. Expect curated discussion about: the meaning of spiritual activism, unpacking your role in maintaining white supremacy, addressing the harm/struggles/frustration regarding discussing race and racism (especially for and toward POCs). Folks will leave feeling empowered in their journey to better show up for themselves and the collective, and most importantly, in supporting people of color (particularly Black and Indigenous women).
