YWCA Evanston/North Shore Racial Equity Training

The YWCA's Racial Equity Training helps participants develop the skills and vocabulary necessary to engage in honest dialogue, in order to understand how systemic racism affects the lives of all who live and work in our communities.

Trained facilitators help the group envision what racial equity could look like and identify roles individuals can take to move us, and the systems in which we participate, toward the goal of becoming equitable communities. Register now at http://www.ywca.org/racialequitytraining
