Description

This is a two day workshop for faculty and staff. It is faciliated by Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training (https://crossroadsantiracism.org/).

The workshop is from 9am-12:30pm on August 25 and August 26. Participants must be able to attend both days of the workshop.

The idea that oppression, and in particular, racism, is not only a matter of individual prejudice but a systemic, institutional problem of power is foundational to the Introduction to Systemic Racism workshop, and requires structural intervention to dismantle. 


Participants to this workshop will gain shared language and frameworks with which to grapple not only their unwitting legitimization of systemic racism but with what committing to the work of dismantling racism and of cultivating antiracist culture and practice in their institutions will require. They will be introduced to a strategic methodology that can assist them to organize the work of dismantling racism in the institutions in which they are invested.
