If you have spent the past year reading everything you can on racial justice and racial equity, then this is the workshop for you. The Greenspon Center is excited to be offering a foundational workshop designed to invite people to deepen their understanding of racial equity, entitled “The Spiral of Transformative Change: A Liberatory Approach to Racial Equity.” Over the course of the session, we will explore the importance of applying a trauma lens to our collective efforts and consider a set of principles and ethics that can guide our work together. Participants will also be introduced to language and frameworks that are grounded in an analysis of anti-blackness and indigenous erasure while also deeply rooted in an intersectional perspective and multi-front strategy. Participants will leave with tools and frameworks that will continue to deepen their discernment and analysis as they develop their own path towards advancing racial equity within their own spheres of influence.
