Introduction to Systemic Racism

August 8, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Introduction to Systemic Racism

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 in this workshop will gain shared language and frameworks with which to grapple not only with 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.

The Critical Cultural Competency Workshop will be delivered via Zoom by trainers from Chicago Regional Organizing for AntiRacism (CROAR).  The link for Zoom will be sent the week before the training. There will be an hour long lunch break and two other shorter breaks during the program.

The cost is a discounted rate of $25. The Anti-Racism Commission is covering the additional training cost.

This is a one-day program. Register online for August 8 or August 22 or September 1:
