A Conversation Around White Privilege & Systemic Racism with Christina Montalvo

July 9, 2020

We need to make something very clear before we dive in: we are NOT anti-racism educators.  

This is the second instalment in a series of episodes with myself and Christina around the topic of anti-racism, Black Lives Matter, and racial injustice. These episodes can be heavy, and we will potentially get some of this wrong but we need to have these hard conversations, and get it wrong while we continue to do the work we need to do as White Womxn.

Today we talk about:

  • White privilege; a continuation into this conversation, how it shows up for us, and what we are still learning about it.
  • How the online coaching world is trying to link the idea of  “manifestation” to this movement, and why we’re just a little more ‘go fuck yourself’ than we are ‘love & light’ when it comes to that idea.
  • Breaking down microaggression; what it means, what it can look & sound like, and why white folk need to stop it.
  • and so much more…

Our only goal and hope, from doing these types of episodes is that we hopefully help you spark some conversations in your own life, as well as raise awareness to help you figure out some more things to Google learn about. We are not here to be the experts, but we ARE here to have the conversations and show up for the hardship.
