Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) teamed with us to offer their 'Racism 101' presentation to our friends and neighbors in West Hartford. The class aimed to define racism as: "the pervasive, deep-rooted, and longstanding exploitation, control and violence directed at people of color, Native Americans, and immigrants of color, and the benefits and privileges that accrue to white people, particularly to a white male-dominated ruling class." Using this definition, SURJ works to motivate white people to be actively anti-racist by learning about and 'showing up for racial justice.'

Below you will find the presentation slides, facilitator packet, and notecatcher for the presentation.
