Event description

Description

King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) Director Leo Flor, DCHS Management Team, ESJ Leadership Team and Equity and Inclusion Manager Pervis Willis welcome you to an all-day workshop: Race: The Power of an Illusion (RPOI).

RPOI is a three-part video series that examines the concept of "race" from a scientific and historical perspective, from the beginning of our country’s history to the present. It focuses on institutional racism woven into the fabric of American history and helps us see how this institutional racism has affected all of us.

During this all-day workshop, participants examine race, power and privilege, first by exploring how the concept of race has no basis in genetics and then by exploring how the “illusion” of race has been used to create very real divisions in social relations and harsh inequities in American institutions (housing, law, education, the courts), throughout history.
