At Okanagan Lifestyle we are a community of climbers re-imagining a different view from the top. We can’t speak for you but we’re ready to climb a few mountains needing exploring. To start, we’ve sparked conversation and connection with a number of diverse local organizations who we look forward to working with more in the near future. A variety of resources that have been recommended can be found below.
- Me and White Supremacy, by Layla F Saad
- I Can't Breathe: A Killing on Bay Street, by Matt Taibbi
- So You Want to Talk About Race, by Ijeoma Oluo
- 13th (Documentary)
- When They See Us (TV Series)
- Selma (Movie)
- Freedom Riders (Documentary)
- An audio series from The Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery.
- A multi-racial, multi-generational team of journalists fascinated by the overlapping themes of race, ethnicity and culture, how they play out in our lives and communities, and how all of this is shifting.
- Author Robin DiAngelo sits down with Goop to talk about her work which asks us to question what we think we know about racism, the conversations we avoid having about racism, and the roles we might (unintentionally) be playing in upholding inequality.

Additionally, we’re making more space at our table (in the workshop and via our upcoming online blog) for BIPOC voices to be heard by being doers. We have a Summer student job opportunity upcoming we’re passionate to fill with a BIPOC member of our community. Contact us here to learn more.
Let’s continue to UNITE as we move and climb into tomorrow. We’re glad to be journeying this path with you all. More to come soon. All our love.
