About This Workshop

If you can no longer sit on the sidelines and have do to something about racism but wish you had more direction, then this mini workshop is for you.  While it won't be easy, I'll help you create a plan for the work you want to do, how to communicate that plan to others, and how to make it happen.

First we'll begin by talking about why this work is so important.  From there we'll create a plan and discuss how to start taking action.  We'll also discuss how to have courageous conversations with others and how to organize for change.  Finally we'll talk about where we go from here and how we build upon the work we've done.
