The Living the Pledge Workshop is a 12-hour virtual zoom workshop designed to give participants confidence in their ability to talk about and confront racism wherever it lives. The workshop is about 50% small group discussion, with the same small group throughout and beyond the workshop. Some pre-work is required, as is a commitment to attend all sessions.
The primary goal of this workshop is to develop confidence in our abilities to:
Integrate the Pledge to End Racism into our daily lives
Recognize and challenge systemic racism
Confront racism and bias in our everyday lives, and
Take leadership in ending racism in our community, our culture, and our lives
As part of the workshop, participants develop a community of support and an understanding of how to use support in deepening our work in building a just and equitable multicultural world.
The workshop is for everyone – for people who have:
