Anti-Racism Training in Newton, Kansas


The goal of the training is to build a common understanding of racism and to work toward long-term transformation of institutions in our community. The training is accessible to both individuals and teams that have a desire to dismantle racism within their institution or community. NCRJ has contracted with Roots of Justice (rootsofjusticetraining.org), a highly-experienced organization committed to anti-oppression work, to facilitate the training.

The anti-racism analysis training that Roots of Justice will facilitate is a 2 ½ day training that covers topics such as: history of racism and resistance to racism, thinking systemically about communities, racism’s intersections with other forms of oppression, colonialism, defining racism, race as a social construct, racism as a systemic reality, white privilege, internalization of racial oppression and superiority, racial and cultural identity, institutions and institutional racism.

The training will be held February 17 from 6-9 pm and February 18 and 19 from 8 am-5:30 pm at the Newton Recreation Commission, 415 N. Poplar, Newton, KS
