Anti-Racism 101: Removing Blind Spots, Building Bridges

In this 3-hour workshop, we will lay the foundation to: *Develop clear definitions of race, oppression and privilege. *Interrupt the pervasive and unseen operations of privilege. *Increase capacity to create interactions that build bridges of trust. *Develop a framework to understand cultural appropriation. *See how a "color-blind" approach while well-intentioned both reads as a time-bomb of hurtful, unexamined entitlement and continues to yield unequal results. * Cultivating a culture that is safe, inclusive, and supportive for diversity to thrive * Learn tools, practices, and principals of alliance.
