PRACTICE PROGRESS

ADDRESSING STRUCTURAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND INTERPERSONAL WHITE SUPREMACY THROUGH BODY BASED LEARNING

WHAT WE DO

Practice Progress is an anti-racist facilitation organization addressing white supremacy through experiential body-based learning:

 

  • We offer a recurring public program LISTEN IN, open to individuals internationally. These zoom Affinity Space / Working Group gatherings address white supremacy and the body over a month long series.
     

  •  We lead multi-racial businesses, organizations, institutions, and communities toward sustainable work-place racial equity. Practice Progress lays the foundation for cultural change, so you can:
     

    • Develop tools for building multi-racial community
       

    • Prioritize BIPOC connection and care
       

    • Improve recruitment and retention of BIPOC staff and students
       

    • Support the development of racial competence for white staff and students

 

We Work From a Four Prong Model:

 

  1. We create Affinity Space for BIPOC to develop personal and community safety, healing and pleasure
     

  2. We create White Working Group Space for white people to increase their personal and relational anti-racist analysis
     

  3. We offer strategies for Multi-Racial Coalition Building centered on accountability and trust
     

  4. We build Sustained Relationships with our clients with the understanding that this work requires a commitment to deep community.

 

WHO IS THIS FOR?

For white people interested in anti-racist allyship, BIPOC seeking rest and healing in community, organizations with an investment in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and universities wanting to create culturally competent graduates, our services will be particularly useful for you.
