Being an Anti-Racist Organization
June 30, 2021
By early June of 2020, 76% of Americans saw racial and ethnic discrimination as a “big problem,” a significant increase from only 50% in 2015.
Getting into “good trouble, necessary trouble” in this session means righting the boat, plugging the leaks, taking up the oars—being an advocate, an accomplice, for “anti-racism”—NOW! As an advocate/accomplice, you learn how to analyze and discover racial disparities in systems, policies, practices, processes and preferences. You learn how to communicate your findings. You hold your organization accountable for abolishing racial disparities. You create a sense of urgency.
Participants will take away processes and tools they can share with their co-workers. They will leave with a clear understanding of what it means to be an Anti-racist organization, and an anti-racist champion.
