Racial Equity Workshops at the Literacy Council
Sign up for two-part racial equity workshops at the Literacy Council, brought to you by Rainbow Institute.
Our community is filled with people and organizations doing a variety of things to make people’s lives better. They are all important. But sometimes helping can also hurt. That’s especially true when we ignore the ways our differences impact our interactions. Rainbow Institute’s social justice workshops focus on naming our differences, honoring our differences, and creating space to explore how we can use a deeper understanding of those differences to move toward more equitable communities.
We center and talk explicitly about race as a social construct, and as an analysis to break through other forms of inequity. Participants come out with a language for these difficult conversations, an understanding of implicit bias and how it shows up, and a framework for how we begin to disrupt harmful ways of helping.
“Justice is what love looks like in public.”- Dr. Cornell West
