How to Be an Anti-Racist Organization on Whidbey Island – Level 1 Workshop: How to Be an Anti-Racist Organization Day 2
July 2, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The journey towards racial equity and being an anti-racist community requires that each of us, individually and collectively, do our parts. Nonprofits on Whidbey Island are at varying levels of readiness for anti-racism work. Some have attended trainings, while others have yet to begin. Whidbey Community Foundation has partnered with Kenesha Lewin and Diana Sandoval to offer workshops to Whidbey nonprofits that meet varying levels of need for organizations that are interested and committed to this work.
