Most of us think that we are "good" people who don't hurt or oppress anyone. A good number of us consider ourselves "woke". That means that we are aware of oppression, particularly racism, and we are NOT a part of the problem. In reality, we are all a part of the problem. "Woke Isn't Enough" is a podcast that challenges all of us to recognize how we sustain systems of oppression and what it will really take to finally disrupt them once and for all. Expect lively, challenging and provocative conversation with Fiona Oliphant and Jess Ayden Li.
