    Introduction to Undoing Racism®

    • Introduction to Undoing Racism®

Training Overview

In this workshop, the participants will experience a humanistic process for laying a foundation to explore how we have been socialized and conditioned to think about race and racism by first analyzing class, power and institutional/individual relationships to and within communities. As power is analyzed concepts will be introduced that play a role in maintaining the current disparate racial outcomes that every system and institution produces. The training is not a substitute for the workshop. It is only an introduction and can be a valuable step in building support for organizing a complete Undoing Racism Workshop®.
