Me And White Supremacy -
The Workbook

The long anticipated workbook from Layla F. Saad’s #meandwhitesupremacy Instagram challenge is here.

Part education, part activation, the Me And White Supremacy Workbook is a first-of-its-kind personal anti-racism tool for people holding white privilege to begin to examine and dismantle their complicity in the oppressive system of white supremacy.

The work doesn’t start ‘out there’. It starts ‘in here’.

Hello, my name is Layla Saad and I am the author of the Me And White Supremacy Workbook.

The #MeAndWhiteSupremacy work initially began as a 28-day challenge that I ran on my Instagram page between June and July 2018 for people holding white privilege to examine their complicity in white supremacy. The challenge quickly went viral, with thousands of participants from all around the world taking part in a profound collective truth-telling journey to help them unpack and dismantle their internalised racism. Over the course of a month, I guided participants through simple yet powerful journaling prompts that held up a mirror for them to see and own their complicity in a system that is designed to oppress and marginalise Black, Indigenous & People of Colour. The impact of the challenge was far bigger than I could have ever anticipated. This workbook was created to help people continue the work.

Following the same 28-prompt process, the Me And White Supremacy Workbook will lead you through a journey of personal reflection and deep shadow work. The purpose of this workbook is to educate people with white privilege as to their internalised racism, and facilitate personal and collective change to help dismantle the oppressive system of white supremacy.

"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."
