Hello to all of you who have attended the full-day Interrupting Racism Actionshop with RNW!

We welcome you to join us for a free Interrupting Racism Practice Workshop. This is a chance to notice what is working, acknowledge and practice with the challenges you’re facing, and re-equip yourself with tools and support to keep moving the needle on interrupting racism within yourself.

  • Date & Time: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 from 10:00am to 12:00pm
  • Location: Resolutions Northwest, 2538 NE Broadway, 2nd floor

This practice session may include role playing – or not.  It may include affinity space – or not.  People of Color, as always, should feel free to participate as much or as little as you like. Introverts beware! Introverts be Bold!

This workshop is only open to people who have attended our full-day Interrupting Racism Actionshop.

Join us for the next day-long Interrupting Racism Actionshop on Feb 13, and meet the prerequisite! Register for prerequisite.

Hope to see you there!
