Crossroads sponsors several open workshops: Analyzing & Understanding Systemic Racism in spring and fall, our annual national Advanced Organizers Training each summer, and occasional specialized trainings throughout the year. Information, updates and links will be posted on this page.
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for individuals & institutional leaders responsible for diversity or social justice. Using a variety of interactive tools, it explores the historical development of institutional racism and its continuing impact. Participants will build a common definition of racism and explore the historic development of institutional racism in the US. They will examine ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White people; explore racism’s individual, institutional and cultural manifestations; and consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression. A strategic methodology to dismantle racism will be introduced, focusing specifically on applying principles of organizing and social/cultural change.
