Racial Equity and Inclusion Training - Phase 1 @ Jerry Sue Thornton Center | Cleveland | Ohio | United States

Over the course of 2016, a dynamic cross-section of local civic leaders and community stakeholders attended half-day “Groundwater” and two-day Phase I trainings led by the Racial Equity Institute(Greensboro, NC). These intensive introductions to historical, institutional and systemic racism challenged deeply-held assumptions, and revealed—with sobering clarity—the devastating impacts of persistent racial inequality on our nation’s most marginalized populations.

In January 2017, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress and engaged partners will embark on a learning journey to increase our shared understanding of racial inequality, to foster productive dialogue among community stakeholders and civic leaders, and to determine strategies.
