Racial Equity Workshops

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.

Racial Equity Workshops are open to all. Each workshop lasts two hours and costs $100 per person. Upcoming workshops are being conducted online via Zoom.

Registration closes at noon the day before each workshop. This allows us to arrange appropriately for workshop activities, and to send any materials participants need (and may want to print) for the workshop.

*2021 special offer* Register for two or more racial equity workshops, take 50% off all workshops (discount will be automatically applied at checkout; offer must be within one transaction).

"I just appreciated this, more than I can say! How can we get these workshops to every teacher, volunteer, heck, every citizen of this country?! Our approach to racial issues would be so much better."
