Prerequisite: One of our Racial Affinity Kickoff Workshops*

Rather than a “train the trainer” model, this course is designed for participants to expand their understanding of racial affinity work by engaging with one another in racial affinity groups. This will be an opportunity for participants to truly experience what it looks, sounds and feels like to engage in racial affinity work so that they can engage others in the work upon returning to their schools and organizations. Through monthly touch points, participants will have opportunities to participate in and facilitate racial affinity work while connecting and building relationships with other like-minded educators. Our goal is to set you up for beginning to support and sustain racial affinity work in your context. (Prerequisite: December, May or July Racial Affinity Kickoff Workshop)
