Learning about race is a life-long journey.

COURSES

Talking about race, racism and anti-racism is hard. In our classes, we provide a structured and facilitated space for you to learn about race, racism, and anti-racism.

We offer clear language and definitions so that we can have dialogues about an often triggering topic.

We provide self-reflection and analytical tools to understand how racism operates in us and in the world.

We build trusting relationships that can sustain difficult conversations about race.

We create communities of learners able to support each other on our racial justice journeys.

START THE JOURNEY

This introductory 6-week course is for educators and parenting adults interested in learning how to talk about race and racism with young people.  While we focus on schools primarily, this course is relevant for individuals and organizations looking for anti-racism training. This course focuses on raising your awareness about race and racism and provides concrete tools to support and empower you to engage in dialogues about race.  This course is now full.  It will next be offered in Spring 2022.  Registration will open in December 2021.

This course is for those who have completed the How to Talk About Race course.  In this intermediate level course, we delve into race theory covering topics such as racial identity development, intersectionality, and racial capitalism.  We also study the history of the construction of race and consider the role that storytelling plays in racial justice movements. This course is less focused on pedagogy and tool building and more on building your race theory knowledge.  This course is now open for registration.  This course meets on Mondays starting in November on 11/1, 11/8, 11/15, 11/22, 11/29 and 12/6 from 4-6pm, PT (6-8pm, CT | 7-9pm, ET).

This course is for those who have completed the How to Talk About Race course.  This intermediate course is for K12 teachers interested in using an Intergroup Dialogue model in their classrooms.  Educational research shows that the use of Intergroup Dialogue pedagogy in classrooms has a positive impact on students’ academic and socio-emotional learning. Moreover, research indicates a correlation between Intergroup Dialogue practices and reduced stereotypes, prejudices and biases. This course teaches educators the four stages of the Intergroup Dialogue model, increases their facilitation skills, and provides practice in using this model. This course will next be offered in Summer 2022.  Registration will open in April 2022.
