Some words from Title Track’s Cultural Healing Facilitator, Elizabeth Wolff…
“What has been known by People of Color in this country is becoming increasingly clear to more and more white people. And that is that our country was founded in and continues to be organized around a system of race-based oppression. This form of oppression, known as systemic racism and white supremacy, is the root cause of so many tragic realities we are seeing played out across the country, from disproportionate rates of covid-19 in communities of color to on-going police brutality toward Black and Brown men and women.
Because racism is a systemic issue, we are all needed to dismantle and divest from it. Here is a helpful resource list including many different ways to learn more about the historic and on-going manifestations of racism and it’s antidote, antiracist resistance. In addition to these resources, we recommend checking out the work of Resmaa Menakem at resmaa.com. Resmaa is the author of a powerful book called, “My Grandmother’s Hands,” about the trauma of racialization and how we can heal from racism by healing through our bodies.
Title Track will be sharing more resources and opportunities to engage with this transformative work moving forward. Stay tuned and thank you for leaning in as together we work toward collective liberation.”
Some words from Title Track founder and executive director, Seth Bernard…
“Sharing with an open heart. Invitational space for my fellow white folks to step further into the work of dismantling structural racism.
Title Track will be sharing resources via social media and offering more workshops and trainings in the coming weeks and months.”
