Racial Equity Workshop

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro Libraries are pleased to be partnering with the Racial Equity Institute (REI) to host an annual series of the award-winning REI Workshops on understanding racial equity issues. REI is an alliance of trainers, organizers, and leaders devoted to advancing racial equity in society.  The REI workshop methodology is renowned as a profoundly illuminating and meaningful experience for attendees, all of whom come away with a greatly increased understanding of racial equity and justice.

By working with REI to host this workshop series annually, the UNC Greensboro Libraries seek to make a difference in raising the regional awareness and comprehension of racial justice, equity, and historical issues in race relations, UNCG is therefore providing support for these workshops and other aligned efforts.

Who can attend: All workshops are open to registration by UNC Greensboro faculty, staff, students and the general public at the listed prices subject to availability.  REI seeks to balance the ethnic composition of workshop attendees, and therefore reserves the right to review the mix of attendees attending each particular workshop for this purpose.

Workshop Pre-requisites Sequence: REI requires that attendees take these workshops in a sequence, starting with the Phase I Workshop. The Latino Challenges Workshop builds on the vocabulary and curriculum of the Phase I workshop; those who wish to take Latino Challenges must first attend a Phase I Workshop.

Latino Challenges

Latino Challenges is a two-day workshop for people who live in or work with Latino communities interested in ending racial disparities in our institutions and working together for social justice. Participants will engage in a critical analysis of how racism dis-empowers Latinos, hindering both individual well-being and community development. The workshop will examine how Latinos have been racialized in the US, as well as the cultural backdrop of race and racism in Latin America that shapes our layered identity today. At the same time, the workshop will explore how our particular cultures, identities and histories of struggle are vital sources of strength for individuals and families of Latin American origin in the United States. Further, the workshop will directly address how racism is used as a wedge between Latinos and African Americans and undermines anti-racism movement.
