About The Center on Interracial Relationships

(っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ What do we do? ♥
Interracial relationship problem solving and support. 
We help with answers to nuanced interracial relationship questions (you can’t find them online, have you ever googled it?) We share our experience navigating interracial relationships and want to hear from you. What would our relationships look like if we were allowed to talk about these parts of our identity? For most of our history we couldn't have these before because it was unsafe to have them.

Whether it is your mom, child, partner, business partner, friend, co-worker, we want our interracial relationships to help us grow. The more we understand the context we live in the more we can be better.

(っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ Why do we do it? ♥
Our relationships are the mirrors to some of the world’s deep entrenched and unresolved issues. They are also our support systems and greatest sources of joy. They are the legacy we build and our home.

(っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ Why Patreon? ♥
Because we don’t want to be inaccessible anymore. We originally worked primarily with business and organizations but have moved away from that. People and individuals can’t access the conversations that we have in private training spaces. We don’t want to work exclusively with organizations because these same organizations rarely make any changes that matter. Individuals are where the change lies and the only piece of the work that will make real change. We make up these systems, sharing our stories to identify how this is manifesting within each of us. We need to share what goes on within each of us in our relationships (Liana and Sydney) into a conversation that all people can participate in.

Our experience of race and racism is deeply personal. It seems that it has become that we need situations and experiences to touch our lives and that just knowing that atrocities are happening is not enough. The reality is that we have to move past this and exercise our empathy. One way to do this is to look at our own relationships and practice removing our ego and focus on how we are complicit in the suffering of ourselves and others.
