UNDOING RACISMTM WORKSHOP

THE PEOPLE’S INSTITUTE FOR SURVIVAL AND BEYOND
September 20-22, 2018

Through dialogue, reflection, role-playing, and presentations, this intensive workshop challenges

participants to analyze the structures of power and privilege that hinder social equity and

prepares them to be effective organizers for justice.


Participants will explore what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. The workshop emphasizes learning from history, developing leadership, maintaining accountability to communities, creating networks, undoing internalized racial oppression and understanding the role of organizational gatekeeping as a mechanism for perpetuating racism.

They have provided training, consultation, and leadership development to more than 110,000 people nationally and internationally. www.pisab.org
