Join us for the Structural Racism Workshop with Schools Out Washington!

Racial disparities are striking, enduring, and pervasive, and the successes of a few youth of color cannot obscure the overall pattern of opportunities and benefits that is defined by race. Structural racism is a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist in the U.S. (Aspen Institute). This workshop will provide foundational knowledge about structural racism. Participants will identify connections between historical racial injustices and present-day realities for young people and communities of color.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Understand what structural racism is and how it contributes to inequitable outcomes based on race.
  • Explore components of structural racism within the context of pandemics.
  • Begin exploration of strategies to work towards racial equity.

 

This workshop is free, but registration is required here.
