Chicago Regional Understanding and Analyzing Systemic Racism Workshop 

The workshop provides an in-depth look at race and racism in the United States. Individuals and institutional leaders responsible for diversity and social justice will appreciate the exploration of the historical development of systemic racism and its continuing effects in our society.  Participants will examine ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White people; explore racism’s individual, institutional and cultural manifestations; and consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression. A strategic methodology to dismantle racism will be introduced, focusing specifically on applying principles of organizing and social/cultural change.

Chicago ROAR workshops are designed to reveal how systemic racism plays a role in often unseen ways, creating barriers to true multicultural diversity and racial justice. We’ll help you struggle with the tough questions and begin to equip you with the skills to dismantle racism and transform your institution.

Registration includes workshop materials, snacks on Thursday evening and continental breakfast and lunch on Friday and Saturday, 

About Chicago Regional Organizing for Antiracism (Chicago ROAR)

Chicago ROAR is a Regional Program of Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training. The Mission of Chicago Regional Organizing for Antiracism is to dismantle systemic racism and build antiracist multicultural diversity within institutions and communities implemented primarily by training institutional transformation teams and guided by the following principles:

  • The work of Chicago ROAR is based upon a systemic analysis of racism and its individual, institutional and cultural manifestations;
  • Chicago ROAR seeks to be accountable in its work to those who share a common analysis of racism, and especially to communities of color;
  • Chicago ROAR understands its antiracism work to be part of a national and global movement for racial justice and social equality;
  • Chicago ROAR recognizes that resistance to racism also requires resistance to all other forms of social inequality and oppression.
