This workshop explores strategies and tactics for addressing racism from loved ones in meaningful and impactful ways. Participants will engage with a variety of scenarios that manifest implicit or overt bias. Common behaviors and tactics for dismissing conversations about race and minimizing the harmful impact of racist behaviors, beliefs and language will be explored. Participants will learn a number of techniques that take into account balancing relationships and creating long term sustained progress and change while understanding the roots of prejudice and tapping into the individual’s capacity for empathy.
Please note: We strive to create a brave space for all participants. In order to help folks make bold moves into progressive thinking and actions, all conversations and material shared during these workshops are strictly confidential and cannot be shared through media of any kind.
