The series is open to all community members. Participants will learn how systemic racism functions through laws and policies, understand concepts like positionality and intersectionality, move beyond fear and some of the emotional barriers to advancing equity, and learn tangible tips and skills for building your own anti-racist practice.

Registration is required (see below). These are virtual events held via the Zoom online discussion platform. You’ll receive connection info via email once you register.
