About the Event
This foundational 1.5 hour workshop is facilitated virtually, using plain language by Kerry Cavers, Founder & President of Moms Against Racism Canada. With gentle compassion, Kerry invites participants to explore some uncomfortable concepts to become more confident in their understanding of racism.
Kerry meets participants where they are in their anti-racism journey, and leads them through a thought-provoking session covering:
- What is race, racism, white supremacy and anti-racism
- The four main types or categories of racism
- An activity to practice identifying racism
- Steps to becoming anti-racist
- Reflection on personal anti-racism journey
- Personal next steps
Following the session is an optional questions & answers period.
A worksheet is provided so participants can actively follow along, take notes, capture insights, and document commitments throughout the session. Additional resources are also provided following the workshop.About the Facilitator...
