Decoding Whiteness: Racial Justice for a Re-Imagined World is a course for people in the environmental movement to identify, name and dismantle patterns of white supremacy in their lives and work. The course provides a critical opportunity to deepen analysis and understanding of equity, diversity, inclusion, healing, justice, and liberation, and to learn how to embody that work in everyday life in multiple contexts. Participants build capacity to identify the impacts and legacy of whiteness in everyday life, in our work, and in the environmental and conservation movement. We focus on community building and behavior change to support more effective engagement in anti-racism practices and behaviors, and work together toward shared goals for a more livable and just society and environmental movement.

Course goals include:

  • Co-create a community that is committed to ongoing, daily, sometimes painful growth
  • Explore content from diverse sources to deepen analysis and support a new vision
  • Practice refining a new vision and changes in behavior, beliefs and advocacy needed for transformation
  • Evolve a system and thinking of abundance and reciprocity
  • Make tangible commitments to learning about, understanding and practicing behavior that pushes back against the legacy of colonization and engaging in regular anti-racism actions
  • Action planning focused on racial equity and justice
