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’ll help you struggle with the tough questions and begin to equip you with the skills to dismantle racism and transform your institution.

  • 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
  • consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression


Upcoming Understanding and Analyzing Systemic Racism Workshops will be posted when available
