Racism is talked about frequently in today’s political climate, but often folks are operating on different definitions of the term. The Open Table offers an anti-racism training aiming to establish a common working definition so we can work together against systemic racism in all its forms. This two hour interactive training is an introduction to the deeper work of dismantling racism within our context. Our objectives are to help participants establish a common understanding of structural racism, build a common understanding of how movements are built, and to equip participants with tools to be actively anti-racist.

It is a 2-hour transformative educational training that is interactive and facilitated by both people of color and white folks together. We will not solve racism, but we will offer a better understanding of how it plays out in our spaces and how we can work together to dismantle it.
The workshop leaders from the Open Table KC have been trained by Tseng-Development Group, an organization with over 20 years of experience in anti-racism curriculum development.
Space is limited to 40 attendees. $20 per person.
