Americans are talking about race in a new way... but it is not always easy. To help, Challenging Racism has been hosting yearlong Challenging Racism:Learning How workshops since 2004. Through reading, stories, activities and conversation, participants learn to work effectively in cross-cultural situations. These conversations encourage a basic understanding of racism, institutional racism, White privilege, the roots of racism, and its modern manifestations around us. Each of the 11 sessions builds concrete skills for engaging in challenging conversations related to race, second language and other forms of bias.

Challenging Racism: Learning How is free. 
Participants are expected to attend all 11 sessions.
​Register quickly to ensure a spot! We’ll be taking names for the waitlist.
