Racial Justice Workshop
Racial justice can be a difficult thing to understand and an even more difficult thing to talk about. But, if the current events in the United States have taught us anything, it's that this issue is of the utmost importance. You will be Challenged! We're going to break down the term "racial justice" so that we can really get to the core of what it means and fully understand it. The Workshop begins on Monday, August 2, 2021. You may start the Workshop anytime after Monday, August 2, 2021 and take as much time as you want to complete. You may stop at anytime, save your work, and return at your convenience to continue.
AAMAN’s Racial Justice Workshop is designed to expand your capacity in order for you to better understand racism in its historic, institutional, structural, and political forms. AAMAN’s Racial Justice Workshop presents a historical, cultural, political, and structural analysis of racism. Challenges include analysis of structural racism; understanding and addressing implicit bias; race, breakthroughs, and terrorizations. The Workshop gives definitions of race and racism and the inheritance of racial injustice within the United States' judicial system.
You will leave AAMAN’s Racial Justice Workshop better equipped to begin to advocate for racial justice and help participants explore personal experiences, develop shared language, understand how racism operates, recognize examples of white privilege, and plan ways to act against racism. The Workshop's cost is $30.00. You will receive a Certificate of Achievement after completion of the Workshop, sent to the address you provided on the invoice. You will be given as much time to complete the Workshop as needed.
