2 Day Racial Equity Training-August 12-13, 2013

Despite civil rights gains, subtle racialized patterns in American institutional culture, policies and practices continue to generate stark differences in well being between people of color and whites. Institutional leaders need a framework that directs them to analyze characteristics of institutions rather than characteristics of individuals and groups, in order to understand how institutions function differently for different people. Our training introduces a historical and institutional power analysis that provides the framework necessary for institutions to build their capacity to achieve true racial equity. The one caveat is that this work requires long-term institutional commitment because inequities that have been built into systems over hundreds of years are not easily deconstructed. We do believe that if racial equity processes are embraced and prioritized within an institution or organization that institutional inequities can be reduced or eliminated.

    This is a FANTASTIC training. The historical analysis of the establishment and maintenance of systemic racism is tragically informative. This is information that should be incorporated into our public instruction and this training should be required for elected officials, law enfrocement/corrections officers, municipal employees and anyone else working in public services. Kudos and thanks to everyone involved for the time, effort and energy they invest in re-educating our community.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
