Moving toward social justice from the heart

Ten Counterproductive Behaviors of Social Justice Educators

  1. Shaming our allies instead of educating.
  2. Lead with our oppressed identities – forgetting that we have immense privilege as well.
  3. Create competition around being the best at Social Justice – using language as a way to exclude.
  4. Leading with emotions instead of thinking and acting strategically.
  5. Not acknowledging our self-work.
  6. Caught in constant surprise that people do not know what we know.
  7. Choosing not to challenge family members and elders.
  8. Marginalizing the courage it takes to allow your reality to be dismantled.
  9. Refusing to hold multiple truths.
  10. Challenging others to heal, by erasing their pain.
