Our commitment to anti-racism starts but doesn’t stop here.

We will continue to evolve these commitments as our own personal education develops + our opportunities for change grow.

Education

  • Our team has started a book club with our first reading, Radical Dharma by rev. angel Kyoto Williams, Lama Rod Owens and Jasmine Syedullah. We’ll continue with these book clubs with books written by BIPOC and / in addition to pertaining to topics of racism, anti-racism, Black history and white supremacy. We are currently keeping this internal, however this could be an offering to our external community in the future.


  • Quarterly meetings with upper management to review past and future anti-racism action steps to stay on target with anti-racism efforts.

  • Good Space is in the process of creating a shared document that lists the following for our internal team to refer students to and for our external community to seek information from. This list will be updated quarterly.

  1. Articles + links for continued education on topics pertaining to anti-racism.


  2. BIPOC-serving organizations to consider for donation-based offerings.


  3. A database of local BIPOC wellness facilitators (RMT’s, other movement instructors, Reiki practitioners, nutritionists, naturopaths, coaches etc.)
