Every other Wednesday, 5:30-7 pm
These meetings are dedicated to formulating strategic plans and calendaring events. This forum is also used to prioritize activities, make work assignments and assess progress by evaluating each undertaking and developing metrics for measuring movement toward our goals and objectives.
In addition, we review potential speakers who are subsequently invited to share their expertise with our group as a foundation for outreach, programming and partnerships.
New attendees are welcome and will gain a better sense of how Antiracist Riverside performs its mission to empower individual organizations and commissions to eliminate racism.
Hosted by the California Anti-Racism Alliance (CARA)
REI is a Black-owned business comprised of a multi-racial, multi-ethnic and multi-generational team of organizers and trainers committed to the work of anti-racism. As instructors they bring a wealth of experience with backgrounds working in a variety of fields and institutional sectors including public health, education, medicine, social services, etc.
REI’s two-day Phase 1 training is designed to develop the capacity of participants to better understand racism in its institutional and structural forms. Moving away from a focus on personal bigotry and bias, this workshop presents a historical, cultural, and structural analysis of racism. Participants come away with a clearer understanding of how institutions and systems are producing unjust and inequitable outcomes. Participants should leave the training better equipped to begin to work for change.
Contact the California Anti-Racism Alliance (CARA) at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about the workshop, registration, alumni auditing, and potential scholarships.
Join us on the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings each month from 10-11:30 am for a virtual forum of informal and respectful exchange of views.
These facilitated conversations are thought-provoking, honest and meaningful, centering on topics introduced in books we are reading to inform our antiracist mission.
Also featured are occasional guest speakers who share specifics about their work in the community to dismantle racism and racist systems and policies. Follow-up Q & A sessions bring clarity and detail to these discussions.
Books we have read as a group include:
Heather McGhee’s The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together
Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America
Ibram X. Kendi's How to Be an Antiracist
