Identifying False Binaries

This Week's Call To Connect

Poke around in the new Dismantling Supremacy series & add a comment to this month’s discussion.


Weekly Check-Ins

Hi Friends!

Every month, we take a beat to examine supremacy culture, and our responsibility to unpack it within ourselves and our communities.

Riffing our monthly Collaboration Laboratory Obstacle, we explore how tackling our ‘small,’ individual challenges reveals and addresses larger, systemic inequality.

This November, we’re unpacking false binaries.

Reflect alone, with your family, and through the month.

Consider how false binaries (ex: good vs. bad, friend vs. enemy) has impacted your relationships and how you collaborate with (or against!) others.

You’re not obligated to join us in these discussions – but you’ll help others if you do.

Knowing there are other families out there who are facing the same challenges, who have advice, who appreciate the stories we have to share – helps us all move forward together.

Coming up next

Next week, I’ll be back with a new Family Movie Night recap! It’s been a bumpy transition from Facebook comments to long-form recaps –  but I think we’re getting the hang of it. They’ll be less…bad. Hopefully.

(no promises.)

And later this month – I’m creating an easier way for us to connect and collaborate on our monthly challenges. Keep an eye out for notifications later this month with an invitation to join our asynchronous video chat group.

With you,


PS: No need to worry about missing a what’s new – logged-in members can now view our latest discussions in the LBT portal homepage. (This is a temporary thing until I can come up with a more elegant notification system.)

PPS: Now that we’re no longer growing our Patreon community, here’s a A Fun Choose Your Own Adventure Guide to if you’d like to help me keep Raising Luminaries up & running.
