Intro to Systemic Racism


When:  Mar 24, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CT)
Associated with  Partner Plan Act
It is impossible to talk about systems-change without recognizing the insidious nature of racism and its role within systems. For this reason, the CS3 team contracted with Chicago Regional Organizing for Anti-Racism (CROAR) to provide trainings on this important subject.

During this virtual training, participants will build a common definition of racism and explore the historic development of institutional racism in the US. They will examine ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White people; explore racism’s individual, institutional and cultural manifestations; and consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression. A strategic methodology to dismantle racism will be introduced, focusing specifically on applying principles of organizing and social/cultural change.

Registration is extremely limited so please only register if you absolutely plan to attend.

This event will take place virtually and all Zoom details and materials will be sent in advance of the training. Please contact LaQuan McMahan with any questions (LaQuan.McMahan@actforchildren.org).
