Racial Equity Workshop

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.
