Participants in YWCA Evanston/North Shore Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism. Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.
Racial Equity Workshops are open to all. Each workshop lasts 2.5 hours and costs $75 per person. Learn more here.
