Confronting Systemic Racism
Dec 6 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Confronting Systemic Racism @ Harvard Square | Cambridge | Massachusetts | United States

This 5-week course will focus on bridging a deep understanding of personal and structural racism into commitments and a solid plan to move forward. Participants will examine their experiential roles in the dynamics of systemic racism and find the next step in framing their roles in social justice movements. This course is geared to move beyond talking about racism and social oppression and set on finding ways to take action, whether in your own personal sphere or in your community.

All are welcome, but please note the course takes an explicit view that transforming both ourselves and our society to be racially just implicates a responsibility in white and privileged folks to engage in this work more robustly.

Undoing Racism Regroup Session
Feb 2 all-day

This regroup session is a chance for all those that have ever attended the Undoing Racism Workshop to remember key lessons and discover resources for moving forward. The People’s Institute created the workshop as a tool not to address the symptoms of racism, but undo the causes that have integrated into everyday life. Come out to the regroup session to find resources and forge connections with the aim of creating “a more just and equitable society.”

For more information, please reach out to Mahlet Moges at MahletM@macdc.org or Courtney Lloyd at LLOYDCB@bc.edu

Racial Equity Leaders Learning Circle
Feb 9 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

The non-profit sector, like the rest of society, faces a big challenge when it comes to racial equity. Many organizations and leaders struggle to have open and honest conversations about race. And it goes beyond dialogue–How do we build authentic relationships across race? Address the practices and biases of board and staff leaders of non-profit organizations? Transform systemic racial inequity in the mission-driven organizations we love? The Trinity Boston Foundation (TBF) is hosting a group, which meets for seven sessions, with the goal of honest communication and strategic thinking among senior leaders and executive directors (both People of Color and White) of non-profits. This group will become a safe and trusted container for leaders to bring their most vexing racial equity challenges. We will unpack the biases that we each carry that get in the way of leading this work even more powerfully. We will have separate caucus time for the White and People of Color leaders to unpack the differing personal and professional challenges each group faces.
