The second leg of the “Everyone Against Racism” workshop will be focused on providing individual, institutional and macro strategies to assist with enforcing anti-racism. It will also provide a mental health perspective where attendees will learn strategies on how to cope with triggers when they have been victims of racism/oppression and how others can provide support to these victims in tangible ways. This will be the segment where resources will be shared with attendees, followed by a more engaging segment for Latoya to field questions.
Registration for the second session is now open below.
