Racial Justice

This page features resources focused on antiracism, racial justice, white supremacy or white privilege.

Challenging White Supremacy Workshop The (CWS) workshop organizers believe that the most effective way to create fundamental social change in the U.S. is by building mass-based, multi-racial grassroots movements led by radical activists of color. They also believe that the major barrier to creating these movements is racism or white supremacy and one way to challenge white supremacy is to do anti-racist training workshops in our own communities. Here you will find the workshop tools and additional resources for your antiracism work.

Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training Crossroads provides antiracism organizing, training and consultation services to institutions desiring to dismantle systemic racism. Central to our work is creating structures of accountability to People and Communities of Color.

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond focuses on understanding what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. Their workshops utilize a systemic approach that emphasizes learning from history, developing leadership, maintaining accountability to communities, creating networks, undoing internalized racial oppression and understanding the role of organizational gate keeping as a mechanism for perpetuating racism.
