Upcoming Racial & Social Justice Programming
In order to work toward becoming an anti-racist union, racial and social justice must be at the heart of your work as a local leader and/or union member. This two-part workshop will engage in dialogue about moving beyond bandage-type solutions and dig deeper with developing action plans that move toward systemic change.
Learn and share ideas on how to fight white supremacy culture as it comes up in your local chapter, create and build regular spaces for folx to come together to do the “work,” develop and strengthen your equity/social justice team, and get strategies on how to connect to parents and your larger community.
Leaders and equity teams are encouraged to attend. Open to 5 members per local, participants must commit to both parts of the training.
