Racial Equity Institute (REI) Workshops


REI’s 3-hour “Groundwater Session” outlines what it means to think of racism as structural.

In this lively and participatory presentation, REI organizers will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant. Please contact us for upcoming opportunities to participate on one of these transformative sessions.
