"Offline that could mean trying a loving kindness meditation practice (I’ve got lots of them on my app), volunteering, or reading a book about compassion and spirituality. (This one’s my favorite!)

There are plenty of incredible anti-racism teachers and activists to pay and learn from. If you’re not sure where to start, I recommend Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy Workbook. I completed it, and the process was eye-opening, ugly, and I felt like I reclaimed pieces of my humanity I didn’t know I had lost."
