Calling All White Women
Monday, October 25 — 5-8 PM ET
$99 General | $49 for F4AB Patrons and getFIT615 “Wellness Includes Me” Mastermind Members
This is a workshop for moving beyond allyship towards a powerful community. We invite white women to have deeper discussions about their experience of gender oppression and white privilege. Building authentic relationships are challenging as we navigate the Fitness Industrial Complex. In order to work towards those relationships this is an invitation to take a deeper look at the ways white women use their gender oppression as a weapon through acts of supremacy against Black cis and trans women and other marginalized groups.
- Understand white supremacy and their privilege while analyzing its intersection with internalized misogyny/sexism
- Discuss the ways that they have internalized their otherness within white cis-hetero patriarchal capitalistic society
- Share strategies of healing while understanding what it means to build stronger, authentic relationships while working collaboratively with a larger, more diverse community creating systemic change
This workshop is co-facilitated with Jess Thompson of getFIT615.
