The IDEA Initiative has partnered with the California Conference For Equality and Justice (CCEJ) to present the Racial Justice Training series for faculty and staff. CCEJ is a human relations organization dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism through education, conflict resolution, and advocacy. CCEJ integrates anti-oppression education (common language, definitions, terminology, concepts) with experiential activities and dialogue (personal storytelling, circle practice, courageous conversations). CCEJ approaches partnerships with the recognition that all of us hold powerful knowledge and experiences that can be activated in the service of challenging oppression.
The Racial Justice Training sessions are intended to be standalone dialogue-centered workshops with up to 30 faculty and staff participants. Each of the three intensive sessions will focus on a topic that is critical to foster understanding in an inclusive community. Registration may be submitted for any or all of the sessions.
