THE RACIAL EQUITY INSTITUTE – IN PERSON:
Today, we remain committed to ensuring that we show up to advocate against the oppression that many groups and individuals endure. During these unprecedented times, everyone is trying to understand and respond as quickly as possible. Our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women is more crucial now than ever before.
This is an intensive, multi-day training that arms participants with a foundational analysis of the systemic and institutional power of racism. Participants come away with a common language and understanding to do the internal work needed to dismantle racism and to communicate with others about racism and its manifestations. Participants will also develop working tools to identify and address racism within their respective spheres of influence.
We have committed to meet the community need for information by providing this deeply impactful and life-changing material or our Listen, Learn, and Lead sessions to the community every month at an affordable rate. We have added public offerings including a social justice book club; Racial Equity Lunch and Learns; community discussions and more. You can learn more on the Events tab of this website.
Customized trainings for groups/businesses/schools are available to meet your needs as well.
