Event description

Description

Racism shapes the functioning and outcomes of all institutions in America. From urban economic development to rural agriculture, from child welfare to criminal justice systems, racial inequity is found across our country and state, even as people of all races struggle to make ends meet. Even those who are aware of and concerned about racial disparities often find it challenging to understand how racism functions in its contemporary forms.

With a wealth of historical, economic, and other data, The Racial Equity Institute's skilled facilitators foster thoughtful analysis and dialogue. This two-day, interactive workshop helps participants understand how race and racism have been constructed in the US and how ideas about racism live in our unconscious minds, institutions,
and social structures. This workshop is designed for people of all backgrounds who are committed to understanding and eliminating racism. It provides an analysis that helps participants gain clarity about how racism is organized, how it is often hidden from our view, and how to work to disrupt its powerful influence.


The workshop runs all day, Monday and Tuesday, May 13 and 14, from 8:30 to 5:30. Participants are expected to attend for the entirety of both days. A light continential breakfast and lunch are provided. Full and partial scholarships are available. Contact Dave Feldman at david.p.feldman@gmail.com or 207 266.6941 for details.
