Racial Equity 101

Racial Equity 101

Online – Monday, April 22nd and 29th. The link will be emailed one week before the workshop begins.

This workshop is for individuals interested in understanding how racial inequity impacts our lives and communities. The curriculum was developed and is facilitated by a team of Black, Indigenous, and White educators and community organizers in Jefferson County. The goal is to create a more equitable, welcoming, and accountable community. These workshops center on racism with the understanding that by liberating BIPOC/People of the Global Majority (PGM) we liberate all people.


Part I: Setting the Foundation (April 22nd)

  • Identify our motivation for understanding and challenging (ultimately dismantling) racist systems and institutions (the context, why, and who).
  • Become aware of the four types of racism (systemic, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized) and be able to share examples.

Part II: Deepening Understanding (April 29th)

  • Cultivate analytic skills and expand understanding of racial inequality.
  • Consider the role of dehumanization and violence in maintaining racist systems.
  • Make a plan to learn more about and challenge racist systems and institutions.

What you get with this workshop:

  • An opportunity to connect with other individuals and businesses/organizations working to understand and eliminate racist systems and institutions.
  • Two or more facilitators to provide a highly interactive workshop.
  • A slide deck to prepare for the workshop, including definitions and links to additional resources.
  • A copy of the slides from the workshop. Use and practice in generative conversation about racism.
  • A Usawa Consulting Certificate of Completion. Access to the Usawa Consulting team if you have follow-up questions.
