Greater Spokane Progress – Why Race Matters Workshop

November 17, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

$20.00 – $40.00

Greater Spokane Progress organizes Why Race Matters Workshops to help our community develop a collective understanding and common language around institutional and structural racism, and why addressing race matters. Using the acclaimed documentary “Race: The Power of an Illusion,” the workshop addresses how racial inequities have been build into institutions and structures throughout our country, why it is important to use a racial equity lens, and what we can do to advance racial equity in our organizations and in our community.

In this interactive workshop we will:

  • Examine beliefs about race, advantage and justice, and how these issues impact our communities, organizations, and institutions.
  • Gain awareness of historical cases of institutional racism.
  • Define terms and develop an understanding of the difference between structural, institutional, and individual racism; equity and equality; and implicit and explicit biases.
  • Discuss local examples of institutional racism and begin to think about solutions.

The workshop will be led by a multi-racial team of local facilitators.

Registration fees including lunch and snacks:
