YWCA Lancaster is hosting Racial Equity Institute, Part I, formally the Racial Justice Institute. This intensive 2.5-day workshop represents YWCA Lancaster’s core social justice training program. It gives participants a common understanding of racism and related concepts, including but not limited to, bias, white privilege, internalized racism, and structural racism.
YWCA Lancaster views REI-1 as a foundation for working toward dismantling the institutional and systemic racism that is present in our lives, and in the institutions and organizations of which we are all a part.
REI-I takes place at the YWCA Lancaster on North Lime Street in Downtown Lancaster from January 17 – 19, 2020.
