UNDOING RACISM

 
This unique 2 1/2 day workshop is offered by The People's Institute, a national, multiracial, anti-racist network dedicated to ending racism and other forms of institutional oppression. Now in its 25th year, the Institute has provided training, consultation, and leadership development to more than 100,000 people in organizations nationally and internationally.

The People's Institute moves beyond a focus on the symptoms of racism to an understanding of what it is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone.
