Becoming and identifying as an Anti-Racist has become one of the most popular racial equity and justice movements in the 21st century. As individuals become aware of the embedded forms of racism on a systemic, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized level, the motivation to change is only natural. But there has been an avoidance of essential reflective questions one must ask themselves to match their motivations with meaningful, transformative actions. This webinar will explore these questions and the often missing but fundamental steps organizations, and individuals must embark on to understand the meaning of Anti-Racism. Because just saying you are is not enough.
