More information about the Workshop:
The fabric of racism is inextricably woven and constructed into the founding principles of the United States. Racism was done and it can be undone through effective anti-racist organizing with, and in accountable relationship to the communities most impacted by racism. The People’s Institute believes that effective community, systems and institutional change happens when those who serve as agents of transformation understand the foundations of race and racism and how they continually function as a barrier to community self-determination, self-sufficiency, and interdependency.
Participants in the Undoing Racism®/Community Organizing workshop will experience a humanistic process for laying a foundation to explore how we have been racialized, socialized, and conditioned to think about race and racism.
Class, power and institutional/individual relationships to and within communities will be analyzed first. As power is analyzed, how people play a role in maintaining the current disparate racial outcomes that every system and institution produces will be explored.
This intensive, interactive process challenges participants to analyze themselves first, then the structures of power and privilege that hinder social equity and prepares them to be effective organizers for justice.
