What folks are saying about RMJJ’s Racial Equity Workshops (formerly known as Dismantling Racism) two-day training:

[x_blockquote cite=”Mary Webb, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools ” type=”left” class=”mts mbn” ]What I thought I knew and believed about racism was challenged by the information presented. It challenges me to review my own thinking and approach in systematic change to improve the futures of our children of color. Racism means something completely different to me now. [/x_blockquote][/x_slide][x_slide]

Will your work change as a result of RMJJ’s Racial Equity (formerly known as Dismantling Racism) two-day training, and if so, how?

[x_blockquote cite=”Anonymous” type=”left” class=”mts mbn” ]I will be more intentional in my role as a white ally. I will listen more actively to see how I can support communities of color. I will be more aware of my own implicit biases.[/x_blockquote][/x_slide][x_slide]

What folks are saying about RMJJ’s Racial Equity (formerly known as Dismantling Racism) two-day training:

[x_blockquote cite=”Diana Rowan, PhD, LCSW, Principal Investigator Statusboiz – Minority AIDS Research Initiative – Round 3, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” type=”left” class=”mts mbn” ]Darrin Johnson and I were also fortunate to attend Race Matters for Juvenile Justice’s Dismantling Racism Training as part of a UNC Charlotte Chancellor’s Diversity Grant… It was, frankly, life-changing. That is a big statement but hardly does it convey how impacting it was. It was NOT cultural competency training; it went to the causes, not the symptoms of racial inequity. How it is that I have a social work education and license to practice social work, am a social work educator, and continually read social work literature, and didn’t know this information? I have no idea. However, feeling ashamed or embarrassed of my ignorance is not a helpful response, so I plan to come up with a better response as I process this over the coming weeks… I hope you can attend sometime and see/hear these facts/realities for yourself.[/x_blockquote][/x_slide][x_slide]

Will your work change as a result of RMJJ’s Racial Equity (formerly known as Dismantling Racism) two-day training, and if so, how?

[x_blockquote cite=”Anonymous” type=”left” class=”mts mbn” ]My work is directly impacted everyday with the knowledge I have learned through Dismantling Racism. I am more apt to see it more clearly and to react in a more positive way when noticing it. Being a better example and continuing to treat all people with respect and care. To say something when a situation presents itself and to work with my coworkers/bosses to help facilitate a more even playing field for everyone in the community.[/x_blockquote][/x_slide][x_slide]

What folks are saying about RMJJ’s Racial Equity (formerly known as Dismantling Racism) two-day training:

[x_blockquote cite=”Deputy Chief Vicki Foster, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department” type=”left” class=”mts mbn” ]I attended Dismantling Racism. I would recommend it to everyone. This workshop was eye-opening and needed. [/x_blockquote][/x_slide][/x_slider][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
