CNJG is pleased to share this virtual program, hosted by our colleagues at Funders Together To End Homelessness.

Over the past several years, the conversation about racial equity and addressing homelessness has shifted considerably. For many, the racial justice uprisings underscored the importance of deepening our knowledge and understanding of racism and what it means to be anti-racist. Part of “doing the work” also involves regrounding ourselves in foundational concepts to racial equity and bringing others along who are newer on their learning journey.

Join Funders Together to End Homelessness and their partners at Liberation House for this training that will explore in-depth the foundational concepts of racial equity, including the history of race, multiple levels of racism, white supremacy, white privilege, and intersectionality. Participants will learn the basics of critical race theory that are necessary for organizational growth and development. We will also focus on analyzing systems that uphold white supremacy and structural racism in our society.

Later this summer, Funders Together and Liberation House will partner again for a second webinar that will build on these concepts and dive deeper into justice and liberation.
