Embracing Racial Justice in Self & Systems
This five-day experience is centered around building one’s racial literacy and ability to engage in courageous conversations about race. By deepening their capacity to identify and name systemic racism, this workshop guides participants through a process of fostering relational trust as they investigate the ways in which their actions and beliefs may be contributing to white supremacy culture. Each participant creates a “Critical Action Project” that they share and then receive feedback on from the community in order to take the anti-racist principles they learned back into their communities.
This two-day experience is focused on building foundational knowledge and language to better equip folks with tools to engage in racial equity work. Through the use of experiential exercises and collaborative learning practices, this workshop guides participants through a process of self-reflection, team building, and consciousness raising to support participants in their advocacy for racial justice in their communities.
This one-day experience is centered on exploring identity and fostering environments that invite a full expression of one’s self. By utilizing the Montessori philosophy, this workshop supports participants in their own individual work of dismantling inequity and embracing equity and provides guiding principles for participants to begin cultivating diverse, equitable, and inclusive communities.
