About this event

This event is provided by Resolutions NW

Imagine a world where, when racism arises, we take action.

Racism is all around us. It lives in the DNA of every system and institution
in the United States, and here in Portland. This Actionshop is focused on
interpersonal racism, within the context of systemic and institutional
oppression. We will explore the way racism arises in our everyday
interactions, and offer tools and practice for interrupting racism.

We’ll provide a historically and contextually grounded space to talk deeply
about racism and the evolution of Racial Codes. But we won’t stop there!
Simply talking about racism is not enough to dismantle the power structures
that uphold the racial order. At the same time, creating systemic change
requires interrupting the learned and daily behaviors that reinforce racism
to move toward building healthy communities.
