How do you start today on the road to being

anti-racist? As our country faces a long-overdue reckoning

with racism and white supremacy, book studies, workshops,

and discussions crowd the landscape. But not all activities

with the name anti-racism are actually anti-racist. In Anti Racism 4REALS, anti-racism trainers Beckford and Ledder

contend much of the current education leaves out action steps

for dislodging racism in real time, and even worse,

perpetuates racism, causing further harm to Black,

Indigenous, Pacific-Islander, Asian, Latino/x (BIPAL) people.

Using the concept of racial positionality as the entry point

for engaging anti-racist work, this groundbreaking book

offers concrete tools to confront racism and bring about

REAL change in REAL time. Written by two ordained

women - one Black Latina, one white - this straight-talk,

practical workbook provides 137 strategies to be truly anti racist, including scripts and other practices for interrupting

and dismantling racism. A forthcoming video discussion

guide and Leaders Workbook will help facilitate small group

discussion and ACTION-NOW Learning Engagements.
