Title Track and We The People – MI are happy to present Understanding Racial Justice (URJ), a five-week course for white people ready to lean into the racial justice movement. URJ was co-created in 2020 by skilled, longtime organizers and facilitators E Wolff and Seth Bernard. This upcoming cohort will be led by experienced facilitators as part of our new Train the Trainer program, with support from E Wolff and Kara Bender. We are grateful to Rotary Charities of Traverse City for co-sponsoring this work.

This course will support your quest to join the movement for racial justice and is appropriate for white identified people who have had little to no prior antiracism or anti-oppression training. Themes explored will include race, racism, identity, solidarity, accountability, collective liberation, cultural healing, and embodied antiracism practice. The third week will feature special guest presenters who will share stories and insights from their lived experiences as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) people. This course includes creative and somatic practices that support integration, connectivity, and resilience.

Cohort 10 will meet on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30pm ET via zoom from May 17 to June 14. Register by May 17th at noon. Sliding scale and scholarships are available.
