Unlearning Racism Workshop
February 12, 2013
9:00 am-1:00 pm
YWCA of Minneapolis Downtown

What does racism mean to you? Do you have more questions than answers? Whether you've been a target of racism, have seen it happen, or feel that you could do more about racism in your daily life, this intensive workshop will facilitate dialogue that helps you examine the presence of racism in your various environments.

The purpose of the Unlearning Racism workshop is to promote understanding and healing through sharing of personal stories and experiences. We believe that talk leads to action, and that in an environment where honest dialogue occurs, participants can explore personal responsibility and how it can impact institutional change.

This workshop will help you build active listening skills, as well as help you strengthen relationships and connections. At the Unlearning Racism workshop, you can delve deeper into the issues of racism with the goal of making a commitment to change on a personal level, as well as being an ally and advocate for racial justice.

Open to the public; $25 for YWCA members; $50 for nonmembers (scholarships available)

RSVP before February 5, 2013, to afrosch [at] ywcammpls [dot] org (Alicia Frosch) or by calling 612-215-4124
