Racial Equity Phase I is a two-day, intensive training designed to build the capacity of
educators, health practitioners, child welfare advocates, judicial officers, elected
officials, law enforcement officers and other community leaders who are interested in
understanding and eliminating racial inequities, disparities, and disproportionality within
the Mecklenburg community.
The curricula provide talking points, historical factors, and an organizational definition of
racism. It also supports organizational and community leaders to develop a common
race analysis and foundational vocabulary. This workshop connects the dots between
the origins of race in the early construction of America to today’s current systemic racial
inequities across our nation.
