The ACT Boot Camp provides gentle but directed coaching in the form of 30 sessions, each about 20 minutes long and done daily or less frequently, helping white allies learn communication methods based on compassion and strategic persuasion.

Participants in the Boot Camp will progressively learn how to:

  •  Find micro-relaxation methods that can help an ally centered themselves

  • Shift people from arguing about disputable facts to sharing their experiences

  • Avoid common conversational traps that make productive exchanges very rare

  • Discern how to use their own racial experiences to increase their influence over others
