Trainer: Dr. Ram Bhagat
The purpose of this workshop is to explore and interpret the root causes of racial injustice and urban trauma. Through dialogue, dramatization, drumming, and dance, participants will explore how systemic racism impacts individuals, families, communities, and organizations. Ultimately, the goal is to build a culture of resilience for challenging systemic racism locally and globally. The framework for Building Resilience for Challenging Systemic Racism (BRCSR) is grounded in Restorative Justice (RJ) values.
This three-day workshop incorporates healing circle processes which encourage participants to unpack historical harms and address root causes of racial injustice. BRCSR empowers activists and allies to fully engage in the process of open and honest dialogue about racism and oppression in America. Participants tap into their inner-self and collective wisdom through dialogue, dramatization, drumming, and dance. As intuitive practitioners of social justice, they dissect systemic racism and formulate holistic approaches for healing its traumatic effects in order to repair its damaging legacy (TCP).
The cost of this training is $300.
