The Shine Box is a great resource for anyone looking to start, reignite, or continue to take anti-racism action. I really appreciated the clear layout and how the course is designed to self pace with time for reflection. I learned so much and Monique's teaching style is clear, compassionate, and comprehensive. Whether these concepts are brand new to you or you've encountered them before, I believe you will finish the course with a deeper understanding of how to show up effectively on a local and global scale in the fight for racial justice. Highly recommend!

Thank you, Monique, for generously sharing your time and energy for this course and the recording. I have been consciously engaging in antiracism learning (and informed action) on a regular basis since the end of May 2020 and this was still a VERY informative course/workshop. There were of course topics that were familiar to me, but there was also a lot that I learned from Monique and I am committed to continuing to make changes in my life that reflect what I've learned. Wherever you are in your journey of practicing antiracism, enroll in this course!! Monique's expert usage of metaphors and wealth of knowledge and experience with these real issues creates a really impactful learning opportunity so we can all do better.

This class was stellar! It used CBT techniques to teach me all about the beliefs I have that I didn't even realize I held. Monique is an amazing lecturer. I felt welcome but held responsible for myself in a very human way. Would 100% recommend this. I will be purchasing other Shine classes when I have the means!
