Racism. It is a word that elicits strong emotion, and often even stronger opinions. Taking the step to engage in anti-racism work may seem intimidating, or maybe you already feel confident in your knowledge of racial justice and in your allyship. Regardless of where you sit on that spectrum, this training is one that can have benefit for everyone.
Whether you are a social service or mental health professional pursuing a unique and impactful continuing education experience, or a community member, this virtual training experience will challenge you, and expose you to knowledge and skills to gain better understanding of racial justice and allyship.  This is a virtual training, with modules (2 hours of content in each module). The training is designed for participants to be able to take breaks as they need to.
Participants will:
  • Learn about historical events, ideologies, and social structures, and how they inform modern day beliefs, bias, and perception.
  • Analyze concepts of racial identity, bias, privilege, and prejudice
  • Reflect on their own identity, bias, privilege, and prejudice
  • Identify strategies to engage in difficult conversations
  • Reflect on ways to integrate anti-racism work into their daily lives
Facilitated by Ashley Heidebrecht, MSW
Training Modules Overview
Learn: Anti-Racism Training Module 1
What does it mean to be anti-racist?
Module 1 of Anti-Racism Training will explore that question, and will unpack the relationship between historical events, institutional frameworks, the ideology of white supremacy, and how those things come together to construct the social norms, stereotypes, and bias which inform our perception and behavior.

Reflect: Anti-Racism Training Module 2
Identity, personal bias, white privilege, colorism, and prejudice. ​These are concepts that are not easy to talk about, and often bring up strong feelings, including anger, guilt, and denial. In Module 2 of Anti-Racism Training, we are going to unpack them, reflect on how they impact you, and give you the tools to start making changes.

Evolve: Anti-Racism Training Module 3
Becoming an Anti-Racist Ally is a big step, and it is not a one-time decision. Being an ally means making decisions every day about whether you will stand up, or stay silent.
In Module 3 of Anti-Racism Training​ we will discuss how to be an ally, knowing when to step up and when to step back, tone policing, emotional labor, how to have difficult conversations, and how your decisions to become and anti-racist ally can impact your outlook on the world and your relationships.

**Special notice, we will be conducting a pre- and post-test for this training.

Your name and contact information will not be shared.**
