Examine Racism, Stereotypes, & the Root Causes of Violence
The workshop series is for white allies living in Boston and the suburbs. We will present a framework to understand violence as an outcome of structural racism, and racism as inherently violent. We will address the pattern of “fixing and saving” others and shift toward the internal and collective work we need to do to confront racism and create a culture of peace.
