Upcoming Workshops


Understanding and Analyzing Systemic Racism Workshop

Sponsored by the Metropolitan Chicago Synod Antiracism Team; Presented by Chicago Regional Organizing for AntiRacism (CROAR)

An in-depth look at race and racism in the United States, this workshop is designed to reveal how systemic racism creates barriers to true multicultural diversity and racial justice. We will:

  • explore the historical development of systemic racism and its continuing effects in our society
  • examine the ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White people
  • explore racism’s individual, institutional and cultural manifestations
  • consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression
  • review a strategic methodology to dismantle racism, focusing specifically on applying principles of organizing and social/cultural change
