Our Anti-Racism Commitment

For most of my life, I have been one of those liberal inclusive feminists who believe that I wasn’t racist. I could have listed many reasons to demonstrate how I wasn’t racist.  That’s until last weekend.

And then someone sent me this quote:

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”
— Angela Davis

Anti-Racism

I was well verse in thin privilege but not for one minute did I thought about white privileges. That ignorance is what hurts black people.

I’m sorry. I am listening. I am learning.

To the black people in our community, you are in my heart and prayers but most importantly, my actions.

What am I doing?

I’m being a student: this is not my area of expertise so I found teachers. Just like a toddler taking her first step I’m trying, making mistakes, and learning. I stumble and stand up again.

I’m investigating how my white privilege is showing up… Neither I’m staying silent while I’m learning because our silence as a white people is complicit in perpetuating systemic racism. I’m speaking to my followers, students, clients, and YOU right here right now.

I am leading.

I’m committed to the work of anti-racism. As the CEO of Beyond The Food I’m committing this company to be anti-racist.

Here’s a few tools I’d like to share with you on anti-racism

1.  I discovered this site that answered all of my questions and give me next steps . Anti-Racist Resources Center

2. I watched some movies and documentaries that were mind-blowing: 13th on Netflix, Selma on iTunes & Harriet on iTtunes.

3. I donate to The Loveland Foundation that supports access to therapy for black women and girls.

4. I want to share with you my favorite teacher, Rachel E. Cargle. Go watch her Public Address.
