White Awake combats white supremacy by focusing on educational resources and spiritual practices designed to facilitate white people’s engagement in the creation of a just and sustainable society.
Our goal is the end of white supremacy. To this end White Awake supports people who’ve been socialized as “white” with the kind of intellectual and spiritual development necessary to:
- reject the toxic social conditioning that comes with membership in a dominant group and connect with life affirming cultural expressions
- see through the use of racism as a manipulative device that materially benefits a small number of powerful elites
- sustain our engagement in cross-racial coalitions to resist current abuses of power and create a truly equitable, life sustaining society.
White Awake emphasizes mindful awareness, spiritual practice, respect for individual experience and wisdom, and the reality that we are all learning. The country of origin of the work is the United States, and the materials in this site deal primarily with the historcal and current conditions of racism and colonization this country.
