Anti-Racism, Systemic Racism, Critical Race Theory. These are concepts and ideas that most of us did not encounter in our training. Once encountered, a valid question is, “What can I as an individual do about a problem so longstanding and so big?” This workshop will be a conversation with the group regarding that singular question. What can we, as one person, do to be anti-racist, to support and even advocate for not just the person in front of us but also for our communities?

 

Participants will:

  • Discuss the more recent terms used for this conversation and why this is important.
  • Learn micro-level strategies for working with families.
  • Learn community-level strategies.

 

Who should attend: All staff of family resource center (FRCs), child abuse prevention councils (CAPCs), and other child- and family-serving organizations.
