Racial Healing Circle (virtual)
Jul 9 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Truth, Racial Healing, & Transformation logoRacial healing is an experience and a tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences.

This session includes both group interactions and intimate conversations between two participants. Trained Racial Healing Circle practitioners will be present to help ensure a confidential, safe space for participants to have truthful conversations with one another. 

We ask that you register ONLY if you can attend the complete session. We typically try to create circles with as much racial, gender, age, and ethnic diversity as possible, but also can offer circles composed completely of participants who identify as White or all participants who identify as People of Color. If you have a preference, please indicate that on the registration form.

Microaggressions: Intent vs. Impact Workshop (virtual)
Jul 30 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

What are microaggressions? Can they hurt if they weren’t intended in a hurtful way? How do they impact our work environment? What are helpful responses when I see, commit, or have someone use one on me?

Participants in our Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism.  Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.

Equity Workshop: What is White Supremacy Culture? (virtual)
Aug 4 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

It is often hard to talk about race because white culture values certain ways of knowing and not others, and assigns a higher value to some ways of behaving than others.

Because these ideas have been maintained over a long period of time, it is sometimes hard for people to notice that this culture is based in whiteness. What are the characteristic of white supremacy culture – and what do we do once we’ve recognized this?
