Description

Racism, within our colonial settler environment, is entrenched. While it won’t go away easily, we can build our understanding, skill, courage and humility to dismantle racism. In doing so, we are able to transform ourselves, our organizations and our society. This workshop is for those working within community based organizations, in any role, who have gained a basic understanding of the impact racism and colonization have on our communities and want to further explore this issue to gain skills that support making change.​
