Join the Jacksonville Collective for Racial Equity in a discussion about “undoing racism” on Saturday, January 26, , 2019 at 10am. This “mini” workshop is a brief introduction to the 2.5 Days Undoing Racism Workshop that will be held in early spring.

COST: FREE

COFFEE & LIGHT REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED

In the 2.5 day Undoing Racism Workshop, participants engage in an intensive process designed to train, educate, challenge and empower people to undo the racist structures that hinder effedtive social change. The training is based on the premise that racism has been systemically constructed and that it can be undong when people understand where it comes from, how it functions, how it is perpetuated, and what we can do to dismantle it. The goal is to foster local work groups that will continue the conversation and work toward personal and institutional change.

WHAT IS THE PEOPLE’S INSTITUTE?

It moves beyond a focus on the symptoms of racism to an understanding of what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists, and how it can be undone. Across the U.S., The People's Institute has trained over 1 million people in social work, education, human services; school teachers, parents and youth, health care providers, criminal justice advocates, and the faith community.

TESTIMONIALS:

“I don’t know if you fully understand the impact that you have made on the lives of children, youth and families in the child welfare system of Texas. It is more than just about talking to CPS leadership and systems leaders, but it is in these other areas that we have brought into the discussion and into the trainings where it really plays out in the real lives of those people whose lives we so profoundly in our work. So that is how important you guys are in the work that must occur in these systems and I just want you to now how much we appreciate it.”
