Event Description

Anti-Black Racism: Transforming Allyship


A forum for people of all racial identities to engage around ending structural and anti-Black racism. Join us for this opportunity to deepen understanding of racial domination, marginalization and subjugation.

→ Framing racism and its impact across the racialized continuum
→ Interrupting the "divide and conquer" pattern of structural racism
→ Learning and practicing conversation across racial identity
→ Examining patterns, practices and accountability
→ Building accountable allyship for Black and other racialized groups

This virtual three-day event will be led by Joyce Johnson Shabazz, Founder of Evolution, LLC, a consulting practice that works with individuals and organizations addressing challenges to the relational dynamics of race in organizations and leadership. She also directs the International Black African Heritage Caucus and leads affinity work in partnership with the National Coalition Building Institute International. She is joined by Sue Parris, a consultant and trainer assisting organizations to increase awareness of racial and social equity issues and institute organizational equity and inclusion practices. Sue is Chapter Director for NCBI Monterey County and leads the NCBI International White Affinity Group. She is also a founding member of Whites for Racial Equity, a group of white people who are committed to dismantling racism.
