Anti-Racist Work for Black Folk
Saturday, January 26th, 1-4:30 pm, Portland, OR
The newest workshop is a space exclusively for Black folks. Most anti-racist education is geared toward the privileged class. There aren’t many that are meant to teach Black folks to name their own oppression. This workshop will look at anti-racist work from a Black lens. We will review terminology and history as well as learn tools for addressing and interrupting racism in our daily lives.

“I had the great fortune of attending one of Shardé’s workshops on race. Shardé is a knowledgeable and approachable guide to all things race related. She shares her knowledge and lived-experiences with candor and I am grateful to have had the chance to learn from her. Shardé’s workshop has helped me to be a better parent and ally.” – Sawyer (Attended Dive Into Race workshop)
