THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN SUSTAINABILITY IN STYLE ‘READ’ BOOK CLUB
Read is part of the Sustainability in Style toolkit of resources for holistic sustainability. Book resources shelved at Read have been selected as stand-out favourites over years of reading on sustainability, environment, and personal development.
Live Book-Club meet ups like this one are great ways to expand your mind and your social circle.
If you are interested in Book Club but are worried you can’t make it along (or prefer to work at your own pace) then you can follow along via self-guided prompts. These are also going to be shared as part of the self-guided book club content at the Mindful Living HQ members site (launching soon).
NEXT BOOK CLUB BOOK IS:
Me and White Supremacy: How to Recognise Your Privilege, Combat Racism and Change the World.
Meeting Tuesdays 6:30pm AEST Feb-March (6 Weeks)
Essential for all people who hold white privilege. This book will open your eyes and change your life.
‘White supremacy is a violent system of oppression that harms Black, Indigenous and People of Colour.
And if you are a person who holds white privilege, then you are complicit in upholding that harm, whether you realise it or not. This is not my opinion. This is fact. And if you are person who holds white privilege, the question you should be asking isn’t whether or not this is true, but rather, what are you going to do about it?’
Between June and July 2018, Layla Saad ran a 28-day Instagram challenge under the hashtag #MeAndWhiteSupremacy, for people with white privilege to unflinchingly examine the ways that they are complicit in upholding the oppressive system of white supremacy.
The challenge quickly went viral, with thousands of people from all over the world (including USA, Canada, UK, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Russia, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Qatar, among others) diving deep for 28 consecutive days to examine and take responsibility for the ways in which they uphold white supremacy. The challenge catalyzed a worldwide awakening for thousands of white-privileged people to begin to take ownership of their personal anti-racism work.
This workbook was born out of that challenge.
