Our Racial Justice & Equity Education courses are designed for individuals who are committed to learning more about the personal, interpersonal, institutional and structural systems of racism, and taking informed action to transform our communities.

YWCA Boulder County now offers two virtual training courses:

How to be Anti-racist: Introduction

This two-session, three-hour-total training series is focused on understanding individual and interpersonal racism, and is intended to stimulate personal reflection and discovery. The second session will provide training to understand institutional and structural racism and better recognize how systems and structures perpetuate racism.

The $25 registration fee covers the cost of both virtual sessions of this course. The course will be offered to the public on Thursday, February 24 and March 3, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Taking Action for Racial Justice

This two-session, three-hour-total training series is designed for individuals who are ready to work for racial justice. Participants will gain greater understanding of their role as accomplices in creating an anti-racist community, and they will identify tangible actions toward changing systems and structures that continue to perpetuate racism.

This course builds upon the knowledge gained through the How to be Anti-racist: Introduction course. We highly recommend that participants take both courses or that they have a solid understanding of individual, interpersonal, institutional, and structural racism before taking this course.

The $40 registration fee covers the cost of both virtual sessions of this course. The course will be offered to the public on Thursday, April 28 and May 5, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
