Conference holds New & Right Spirit Anti-Racism Training

Sunday, October 15, 2017

September 15th and 16th, a group of New York Conference members gathered at White Eagle Conference Center for two days of intensive anti-racism work. The diverse group, led by experienced facilitators, explored the historical aspects of racism in the United States as well as many modern-day manifestations of racial bias and discrimination. As participants listened, journaled and shared personal stories, each participated in the hard work of uprooting personal biases and broadening their understanding of systemic oppressive structures. With the help of the facilitators, these trainees acquired skills and learned techniques that will allow them to guide others in engaging in these very difficult conversations. These newly trained, Anti-Racism facilitators are available to lead discussions and host dismantling racism events in your association and communities throughout NY State. If you are considering holding an anti-racism conversation or event, do not hesitate to call on them. They are anxious to help.
