A Bold Call to Action​​ 

So, You Want to Be Anti-Racist?

The landscape of social justice activism is flooded with those claiming to be "Allies" in the fight for racial justice, civil rights and racial equity, but are you really an Ally? ​​

It's NOT enough to be non-racist - you must be anti-racist and that requires more than just self-declaration and regurgitating quotes and passages of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - That's too easy, superficial and will NOT save black and brown lives. 

  • Who are you beyond your progressiveness?
  • Who are you behind your liberalism? 
  • Are you a performing pseudo-ally? 
  • Do you know what black and brown people expect from Allies?
  • Are you doing the deep internal work to walk your talk? 
  • Do you know HOW to affect real, systemic change?
  • Do you know what black and brown people need from you right now?

Join Nekima Levy Pounds and me for a 60-minute master class to learn the Top Three Actions You Should Take Now to break free from pseudo-allyship and step boldly into being an anti-racist activist that follows the lead of black and brown people to effect immediate and lasting change for racial justice.
