Racial Justice and Civil Rights

YWCA Kalamazoo is committed to eliminate racism in society. Currently YWCA Kalamazoo in partnership with ERACCE hosts a one-day anti-racism workshop. YWCA Kalamazoo Eliminating Racism Workshop is intended to bring together members of the community to increase awareness of the perpetual existence of and oppression caused by racism in our society and to establish a collective commitment to become anti-racist. It is based on the premise that racism is both carefully taught and absorbed, beginning at the earliest ages. Using powerful videos, open and honest dialogue, and interactive learning experiences, YWCA Eliminating Racism creates awareness, builds personal and collective responsibility, and provides skills to confront racism in our lives and throughout our community.

This workshop consists of one full-day session. It is critical that you attend the session in its entirety, so please keep that in mind when you make your selection. Each workshop can accommodate a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 40 participants.
