Confronting Racism Workshop in Minneapolis on Jun 19, 2012 6:00 PM
Confronting Racism Workshop
YWCA of Minneapolis- Downtown- Get Directions
1130 Nicollet Mall
We've all been there: someone tells a racist joke, and no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to respond appropriately. Or maybe you’re committed to eliminating racism, but would like more skills to help you respond to people in different settings. If this sounds familiar, we invite you to take part in our two-hour Confronting Racism Workshop. This workshop is designed for those who have an understanding of white privilege and racism, and want to acquire skills in dealing with racism as it occurs in their lives. The workshop will develop the participants' active listening skills, and help them practice responding to overt and covert racism. The skills learned in this workshop can be easily applied and taught to others to create more inclusive environments in our lives, and to continue the work of eliminating racism.
Approved for 2 Continuing Education Hours for licensed professional counselors and licensed professional clinical counselors.
Workshop fee: $25 for YWCA members; $50 for general public
