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 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.

This event will take place virtually over the course of two days, March16th from 9:00am-12:30pm and March 17th from 9:00am-12:30pm. All Zoom details and materials will be sent in advance of the training. Please contact Kristen Garcia (kristen.garcia@actforchildren.org) with any questions.
