About the Workshop:

Through dialogue, reflection, role-playing, strategic planning and presentations, this intensive process challenges participants to analyze the structures of power and privilege that hinder social equity and prepares them to be effective organizers/educators for justice. 


Workshop participants will:

  • Develop a common definition of racism and an understanding of its different forms: individual, institutional, linguistic, and cultural;
  • Develop a common language and analysis for examining racism in the United States;
  • Understand one’s own connection to institutional racism and its impact on his/her work;
  • Understand why people are poor and the role of institutions in exacerbating institutional racism, particularly for people and communities of color;
  • Understand the historical context for how racial classifications in the United States came to be and how and why they are maintained;
  • Understand the historical context for how U.S. institutions came to be and who they have been designed to serve;
  • Understand how all of us, including white people, are adversely impacted by racism every day, everywhere;
  • Address surface assumptions about how your work is (or is not) affected by racism;
  • Develop awareness and understanding about ways to begin Undoing Racism;
  • Gain knowledge about how to be more effective in the work you do with your constituencies, your organizations, your communities, your families;
  • Understand the role of community organizing and building effective multiracial coalitions as a means for Undoing Racism.
