Race Equity in Practice: Impact Sites for Systems Change
Click to register.
Featuring CSAJ’s Impact Sites for Racial & Economic Equity: Enlance Communitario and Oklahoma City Artists for Justice.
This webinar will spotlight the work of CSAJ’s latest set* of Racial Equity Impact Sites (part of the Racial & Economic Equity for Survivors Project), both community based organizations addressing the diverse cultural needs of survivors: Enlace Comunitario (Albuquerque, NM) and Oklahoma City Artists for Justice (Oklahoma City, OK). The purpose of working with the current Impact Sites is to mesh racial equity theory with practice– to fortify the organizations’ equity work by offering strategies that aid in analyzing and targeting systemic barriers facing survivors.
The Impact Sites will talk about their challenges, context and concrete tools for responding to systemic bias, unequal access to resources, building community partnerships and more. Webinar attendees will engage in dialogue with the Impact Sites about how to approach the work in their own context.
Participants will walk away:
With the story of the REEP Impact Sites – their community and organizational context
Understanding ways to assess the needs of immigrant and survivors of color (using de-biasing, framing/messaging, resource mapping, and other advocacy approaches)
Equipped with concrete ways to address racial bias and institutional barriers in your own community context
With strategies to engage partners and build alliances to enhance race equity for survivors
*Since 2012, CSAJ has collaborated with demonstration sites to describe and lift-up cutting-edge projects and advocacy approaches, generate new ideas, and explore the factors that produce meaningful outcomes for survivors.
