Racial Justice 101 Training
What does racial justice mean? What’s the difference between equity, equality, and inclusion? Why should we care about this as community members? Racial Justice 101 by YWCA of Grand Island will provide the necessary foundations needed to have conversations about race, racial justice, and equity. In this training, participants will explore our local demographics to get an understanding of who we are as a community, develop a shared vocabulary to talk about racial justice, examine disparities and connect them to history, and discuss individual and institutional action steps for change.
- Participants will recognize the importance of racial justice in our society.
- Participants will discover how race has impacted our society.
- Participants will develop individual action steps they can take to pursue racial justice.
