The Appetizer or Introduction to Undoing Racism¬Æ: In this 6-hour workshop, the participants will experience a humanistic process for laying a foundation to explore how we have been socialized and conditioned to think about race and racism by first analyzing class, power and institutional/individual relationships to and within communities. As power is analyzed concepts will be introduced that play a role in maintaining the current disparate racial outcomes that every system and institution produces. The appetizer is not a substitute for the full Undoing Racism workshop. It is only an introduction and can be a valuable step in building support for organizing a complete Undoing Racism Workshop¬Æ.
The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond was formed in 1980 by Dr. Jim Dunn and Ron Chisom, who worked to establish a training institute that provides not only community organizing skills, but an analysis, principles, and values that make these skills useful. The multiracial team of organizers/trainers includes more than 40 men and women whose anti-racist organizing expertise includes years with civil, labor and welfare rights struggles, educational, foster care, social service and health reform movements, as well as youth and grassroots community organizing. They have trained thousands of people across the world.
Limited scholarships are available for Simmons and BC students, Haymarket grantees and MACDC members.
