Racism 101 Workshop

What is racism, really? Often people think of big, obvious examples, like racial slurs, KKK or Nazis, racial hate crime or not hiring someone based on their skin color.

But thinking about what racism IS and IS NOT is much more complicated than that.

Join us for a conversation that explores the four levels of racism and how they stand alone and intersect with each other. Participants will also gain knowledge of how racism plays a role in everyday interactions, decisions, policies, procedures and laws within the U.S.
