"What stands out most about working with Katherine is how deeply she has and continues to do her own work. The topic of racial justice and white identity exploration is a sensitive one and requires a confident, empathic guide.
As white people, it's important we cultivate our own everyday practice of anti-racism. Reading books and taking a training is not the same as practicing anti-racism every day. Different people need different supports at different times. Finding a group that can be your political home is important. As is having 1-on-1 support & mentorship when you need it. There are many reasons why you might be looking for customized support in your anti-racism work and growth.
Maybe you're stuck in a racially-tense or confusing work situation, maybe you're encountering personal dynamics you want to work though, maybe you are looking for your place in the world of racial justice, or maybe you want support integrating all you've learned about anti-racism. We set the intention for our work together. Oftentimes, somatic/body-based homework and self-observation is involved.
I first started community organizing to dismantle racism as a high schooler. Now 20+ years later, I've learned a lot about the supports out there for white people working to develop their own everyday practice of anti-racism. Being in a group is super important (check out the Liberation Consciousness Everyday Anti-Racism and Radical Aliveness Group) and there are also growth spurts that benefit from 1-on-1 mentorship and coaching.
In my experience, having an 8-week period of time to do a 1-on-1 deep dive can be transformative when it comes to building racial justice leadership skills and confidence. Some people prefer to work together for a longer period of time.
Each session costs $150.
