Workshop Content

We have put much thought into the design of our curriculum. Each new session builds on the preceding ones and provides opportunities to apply previous learning. Participants will learn to better understand themselves as human and social beings, to recognize the root causes and systemic nature of our racial disparities, and to design sustainable and effective strategies for personal and social change.
