Event description

Description

Racism ruins lives!

Racism disproportionately affects the black community in all areas of life -- jobs, health, education, housing, life expectancy, politics, justice system, religion,

Racism is a conscious system that America was built upon and continues to thrive. And while the country is majority people of color, racism allows whites to have privilege that propels them over all other people.

So how can we reverse racism?

"Americans' core social networks tend to be dominated by people of the same race or ethnic background," according to Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI). "Few opinions are formed and few experiences occur in isolation." Social networks play a major role in how people perceive other ethnic groups. Those who are gatekeepers -- people who controls access to something -- make decisions based on their perceptions of people.

Those working in American institutions function as gatekeepers ensuring the continuance of racist systems -- educators, community leaders, juvenile justice advocates, law enforcement, educators, politicians, judges, human resource professionals, etc. These gatekeepers make decisions based on their perceptions of people. Racism can be reversed by working with gatekeepers using the principles of The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond that "focuses on understanding what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone."

Reversing racism must be addressed in a multitude of levels, but gatekeepers can learn anti-racist values and network with other like-minded people thus becoming agents of institutional transformation.

Reversing Racism: A Workshop for Gatekeepers topics include:

  • Learning from History
