Racism 101 (Oregon-Focused) (Virtual)
Friday, February 24, 2023, 10:00am-12:00pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. Often when we struggle to communicate with someone on issues of race and racism, it’s because we are using different meanings for the words that make up our conversation. This workshop will include an investigation into the terms we use to discuss racial justice. We will navigate a brief history of race in Oregon and explore events that shape the region we live in today. Workshop members will analyze the differences between interpersonal, cultural, and institutional racism and the harms and benefits they create. There will also be a discussion on the impacts of racism on advocates and survivors of domestic and sexual violence and how to integrate anti-racism work into our organizations.
Cost: $0-$30. Registration and more information here
