Do You Have An Anti-Racism Pledge?

I’ve been getting asked to help some clients create an Anti-Racism pledge / inclusion statement lately, and here’s the deal with that…

I can’t.

This is something you have to write yourself. There is not a template you can just plug-n-play—that would defeat the purpose.

But there ARE some resources that can help you get started.

— Go to Rachel Rodgers’ Instagram and scroll through her story highlights until you find “The Pledge.” All the info you need is in there.

— You can watch her Town Hall & download a PDF of The Pledge on her website,

— Be honest about where you are now & what you’re realistically doing.

— Be specific about the actual things you’re doing or plan to do.

— Acknowledge where you still have work to do. (And don’t just say, “I still have work to do;” try to be honest about the ideas, spaces, and advantages you have that still contribute to wh*te supremacy.

I have a Google doc with all this written out. DM me & I’ll share it.

Do *you* have an anti-racism pledge? I’d love to see it.

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
