STAGE THREE - COMMUNITY ACTION
Stage Four of becoming antiracist is COMMUNITY ACTION. This is the “do something” stage of antiracism. You sole goal here is to navigate spaces as an antiracist and encourage others white and white passing individuals to start the process of doing their own work to become antiracist as well. You will be able to do this in a way that honors Black, Indigenous, and People of Color after doing the necessary work in Stage Three and learning how to avoid the ways that you can perpetuate harm in the process.
At Where Change Started, we create action guides that help you develop the tools you need to stand in allyship with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color while engage in the community action stage of becoming antiracist. They are meant to be guidelines for ways you can navigate antiracism in ways that honor BIPOC. They are not a finite set of rules to follow.
Has fear of saying the wrong thing stopped you from participating in much needed conversations about race? Do you lack the confidence to initiate conversations that you know should be happening because you don’t know how to do it in a way that honors BIPOC emotional labor and the goals antiracism work is hoping to accomplish? Well, I wrote a thing for you.
