Anti-Racist Practice: Foundational (Virtual Training)

Racism has existed throughout human history. It has produced wars, slavery, the creation of nations, and legal codes. As Human Services professionals, we have an ethical duty to become actively anti-racist in our work in order to best serve vulnerable children, youth, adults and families. This training will review historical and current events and definitions related to racism. Participants will explore resources for using multivalent methods to gain a foundational understanding of the nature, causes, and costs of present-day racism, racial discrimination, and racial inequality.

After attending this training, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and understand terminology related to racism
  • Synthesize historical and current events to understand how racism operates today
  • Identify resources to support anti-racist practice
