About Unlearning Racism: Tools for Action© Virtual Six-Part Series

Eliminating racism is an ongoing process that involves a willingness to learn about, and begin, undoing, the adverse impact of racism on individuals, organizations, and communities.

Unlearning Racism: Tools for Action©, our six-part education series affords participants the opportunity to learn about the impact, history, manifestations, whiteness, and addressing racism in one’s sphere of influence.

Our courses are predominantly white people. Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) are welcomed and wanted. All participants are encouraged to reflect upon and share their lived experiences on race and racism. Often this topic assumes BIPOC’s will teach on this topic. That is not the case here. That is the role of the facilitators.  We invite people to collaborate with classmates on their next steps in addressing issues in their neighborhoods, workplaces, and community.

This six-part workshop series examines the history and impact of racism and what participants can do about it.
