From passive non-racism to active anti-racism

WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE ™

From passive non-racism to active anti-racism

About This Program

Minnesota communities are grappling with understanding and dismantling systemic racism. The Minnesota Humanities Center and Love & Struggle are partnering to help regional hubs develop action plans to create a more just society. Using the WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE™ framework participants will learn about past, present, and future impacts of race in our communities. Reflect through journal writing and build understanding with your community members by storytelling and sharing. Develop action plans to move your community from passive non-racism to active anti-racism.

This program will be a mix of in-person and virtual gatherings.
