  • The Womens Building (map)

Join us for an anti-racism workshop with Karen Fleshman, LeRon L. Barton, and Shaun Haines at the Womens Building!

The purpose of Anti-racism 101 is to educate, mobilize, and build multi-racial community. All who are interested in understanding racism—and moving from awareness to action and accountability in unlearning and eliminating racism—are encouraged to attend.

This time the workshop will be led by:

  • Karen Fleshman, Esq. Founder, Racy Conversations, is an antiracism trainer and police accountability activist. The mission of Racy Conversations is to flip 10% of white Millennials and Generation Z to antiracism so we can have a majority antiracist generation and transform our society.
