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, 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. This is why I've structured my supports for anti-racism white organizers as a 2 month journey. You choose whether you'd like to meet once or twice a week, and move together by having 45 minute phone calls.
Before diving in, I offer you self-reflection homework to guide our initial session, where we determine the intention for our work together, as well as likely homework categories and ways of ongoing self-observation.
Each session costs $80 and there is an 8 week commitment.
The next Deep Dive after June/July will be in Sept/Oct 2022.
"Katherine gave me a chance to see myself from another angle. The practice she brings to your daily life felt like a handful of gold that would continue to feed me, guide me, and nurture me for as long as I wanted to follow it. She opened a door I didn't know existed and expanded my vision into myself and my daily habits and life in ways that are continually benefiting me. It was a great pleasure to work with her."
Maybe you're stuck with a work-related 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, maybe you want support integrating all you've learned. There are many reasons why you might be looking for customized attention in your anti-racism work and growth.
