In this live, online e-course we will deep-dive into the inner work of racial healing. We will investigate how racism operates in us and through us, explore the systemic nature of racial oppression, and develop racial literacy for more effective engagement on this difficult topic. We will incorporate readings from leading racial justice advocates. You will be provided with a downloadable workbook and asked to purchase one text for the course and one blank journal. With successful course completion, you will receive an Anti-Bias Certificate of Training. Note: this course holds a shared container of inclusion; it is not an affinity course.
