How do we create honest conversations about racism with those around us?
How do we speak our truth while being an instrument of healing for others?
This 4-part series explores the roots of racism, colonial violence and power and oppression, and seeks to guide participants to come to a greater understanding of the impacts of racism on an individual, institutional, and societal level. Participants will learn about critical race theory and practices of anti-racism across different aspects of their lives.
Our facilitators will guide you compassionately through the series, allowing participants to build upon their existing experiences and knowledge, and find personal and professional applications for the material at the same time providing opportunities to place themselves at the fire of this crucial conversation.
Learn how to engage, sustain, and deepen the difficult conversations about racism in our society. You can create racial equality, one conversation at a time.
