New Hampshire SURJ (Local)
On our path toward Racial Justice, there is a lot of unlearning that needs to be done, especially in our white communities. What is this culture of white supremacy that we’ve been brought up in? Is this how we want to walk in the world? What is bias? What does racial justice look like in our schools and community? These are the conversations we have with each other to learn and reflect so that we can show up most effectively in the fight for our collective liberation. Join us.
UNITY Yoga Teacher Training Fund (Local)
The UNITY Teacher Training Fund was created to promote equity in the yoga field for Black people, Indigenous people, and other People of Color. We also want to include differently abled bodies and non-binary persons. Our minimum goal is to raise enough money to award full tuition to one individual a year to a Teacher Training of their choice.
The Lineage Project
Lineage Project teaches trauma-sensitive mindfulness to young people, ages 11–24, navigating serious challenges and the adults who work with them as a way to develop stress management and resilience-building skills, and build community.
Lineage works within the justice, education, shelter, mental health, and foster care systems, and with community organizations. Lineage classes are built around a 3-part program model that weaves together facilitated discussion, movement practices (e.g., yoga/Tai Chi), and guided meditation.
Since June 3, the Anti-Racism Daily has been sending one email a day pairing current events with historical context and personal reflections on how racism persists in the U.S. (and around the world). The newsletter is free, and readers can make a contribution. There’s also a paid group subscription option for workplaces and schools to get weekly discussion guides, monthly reporting, and other perks. The Anti-Racism Daily started as a casual project by Nicole Cardoza, who acts as editor-in-chief and identifies as a cisgender Black woman.
