"Layla Saad’s no-nonsense, dig deep, stick-with-it approach was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. Through this process, I’m learning what it looks, sounds, and feels like to continue to center myself in my whiteness. I’m becoming aware of how I move through the world. I’m learning to look for opportunities to make even momentary connections with Black, Indigenous & People of Color so that I might begin to build trust. The larger impact of this work has been an increase in the attention I’m giving to the systems that I’ve long benefited from. I’m paying closer attention to how I show up in conversations with other white women, prompting discussions about white supremacy and how it permeates every bias, every decision we make. I’m taking responsibility to speak up, letting my white friends know that I will center women of color, every.single.time. Thank you, Layla, for laying it out there, for doing the work so that I can do mine."
