Thursday 1-5pm and Friday & Saturday 8:30am - 5pm
The purpose of this ERACCE-hosted, Crossroads-facilitated training event is to provide an opportunity for the participants to develop shared language for talking effectively about systemic racism, explore an introductory analysis of systetmic racism, and examine basic strategies for dismantling racism within their organization. This in-depth workshop includes discussion of the socio-historic development of institutional racism; the definition of racism, how racism and racist institutional values have been legally codified and institutionally perpetuated throughout U.S. history; how racism manifests on individual, cultural, and institutional levels; and how long-term organizing informed by antiracist values can lay the path toward institutional antiracist transformation.
