About the Workshop

In this lively presentation, REI organizers use stories and data to present an argument that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant.

*Note: All participants should be aware that we will be talking about how to address current
day racial inequity, and that they are expected to stay for the entire workshop.
