Anti-Racism for Volunteers Workshop Series
Feb 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

This third session will build on the prior two sessions by sharing tools so participants can recognize their racial self-awareness, a necessary component to develop a healthy mentoring relationship.

This 5-workshop Series lead by Alexis Jemal, J.D., LCSW, LCADC, PhD and Karen Gaffney, PhD, will provide safe, open, expert-lead discussions on numerous myths at the heart of systemic racism and unconscious bias. These workshops will include interactive exercises, educational presentations, follow-up activities, and open discussion periods.
