It’s Time to Retire “Sending Love & Light”

Why do we need to give up sending love and light? Because too often this is a response that is used to project individual pathology on to systemic oppression.

To My Fellow Well-Meaning White Ladies,

  • You’re in my heart.
  • You’re in my prayers. (I know that this language doesn’t work for a lot of folks for a lot of reasons — but neither does sending love and light!)
  • Sending you ________ energy. (healing, nourishing, resilient, loving, peaceful, powerful, whatever!)
  • I’ll be thinking about you.

I am a consultant & facilitator in the Deep South dedicated to collective liberation, rooted in systems thinking and deep equity.
