Racism, conscious or unconscious ... is happening every day. Whether we intend to discriminate or not, and despite our best intentions or genuinely held beliefs in fairness and equality, racism impacts everyone.
In this unique training, we will explore our own unconscious biases, the historical and current practices of how racism shows up in our daily lives and how we may do our part to shatter the foundations of systemic racism in which all of us participate and lose.
You will leave equipped with tools and strategies for everyday use, learn how to show up as our most authentic, centered, grounded, courageous & compassionate selves, and discover how to dismantle the barriers that are holding us back and move towards healing, both individually and collectively.
Everyone is welcome.
Facilitated by: Catherine Ashton (Yoga to Transform Truama), Kerri Kelly (CTZNWELL), Tameka Walton (Restored Hope), Phyllis West, Ph.D., MPH, MSW (Governors State University)
