    Institutional Equity: Tools and Frameworks for Leaders

    Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/institutional-equity-5/

    By the year 2042, white people will become a minority in the United States of America. The context of the world is changing radically, and we are living the response to those changes in our communities and our workplaces.

    This training intends to empower individuals to take leadership, wherever you are, to ensure that the response to the cultural shift in our country is responsible, healthy, and just.

    “This training has been so valuable for me and I will take these lessons with me for the rest of my career.”

    People of any level of experience are welcome. The training will be highly interactive and will invite each of us to move through challenges and discomfort toward engagement, connection, and action.

    As individuals, and an organization, that are continually striving to “walk our talk” around equity, Carlos and Teri invite you to join us for this training in the spirit of mutual exploration.

    Interrupting Racism Actionshop - advance registration

    Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/interrupting-racism-6/

    Imagine a world where when racism arises we take action.

    Racism is all around us. It lives in the DNA of every system and institution in the United States, and here in Portland. This Actionshop is focused on interpersonal racism, within the context of systemic and institutional oppression. We will explore the way racism arises in our everyday interactions, and offer tools and practice for interrupting racism.

    We’ll provide a historically and contextually grounded space to talk deeply about racism and the evolution of Racial Codes. But we won’t stop there! Simply talking about racism is not enough to dismantle the power structures that uphold the racial order. At the same time, creating systemic change requires interrupting the learned and daily behaviors that reinforce racism to move toward building healthy communities.

    A note from the trainers: For many Black and Brown people in our community, nothing has changed. For others, especially for many white people, the last Presidential election and events such as the May 26 white-supremacist attack here in Portland have increased their motivation to find out what they can do. The Interrupting Racism Actionshop is not a response to these specific events. This is not a training in self-defense or nonviolent resistance. We will continue to focus the training, as we always have, on internal, interpersonal, organization, and systemic racism and the work we need to do as individuals to change these systems.
