UNDOING RACISM TRAINING with The People's Institute for Survival & Beyond
CoSponsored by Kolot Chayeinu, Repair the World NYC, & Brooklyn Community Fund
808 Nostrand Ave

Saturday & Sunday, Apr 1 & 2 @ 9am - 5pm

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. EVENT FULL.

We are pleased to offer this unique opportunity to learn about Undoing Racism from The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, a national, multiracial, anti-racist network from New Orleans dedicated to ending racism and other forms of institutional oppression. This training is especially valuable for those in positions to take what they learn in the workshop back to their colleagues, institutions, and wider communities, to form local work groups to continue the dialogue and work that must be done. This workshop will help you learn to advance institutional change for racial equality by learning about institutional racism. The workshop focuses on history, leadership, staying accountable to communities of color, creating networks, and undoing internalized oppression.

April 1 is Shabbat, and as such, the day will start with an early morning prayer service.
