The model of Recovery from White Conditioning was developed in 2015 as a derivative work, based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, with guidance from BIPOC consultants. It is designed for white people to challenge and support each other to accept our responsibility for dismantling white supremacy, as it lives in us and around us.
As Toni Cade Bambara expressed: “Revolution begins with the self, in the self. We’d better take the time to fashion revolutionary selves, revolutionary lives, revolutionary relationships.” And as Dwayne Reed recently asserted: “White supremacy won’t die until White people see it as a White issue they need to solve rather than a Black issue they need to empathize with.”
For white people committed to anti-racism: join us as we look within…to transform violent legacies of whiteness into healthy, loving, white anti-racist community and action.
