Changing Racism – Friday, April 1, 2016 – Sunday, April 3, 2016

At the New Location – Daylesford Abbey at 220 South Valley Road, Paoli, PA 19301

2 Continuing Education Units are awarded upon completion of the training and this satisfies the requirement for Healing the Wounds of Racism. This event is only for members of EPA.


This is a 3 day workshop and participation all 3 days is expected. Participants will learn concrete strategies for: • Developing skills for addressing and changing attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate bias, discrimination, and other obstacles to equity

  • Understanding the personal costs to everyone of system of privilege and disadvantage
  • Recognizing institutional racism and other forms of systemic oppression and discrimination that affect members of historically excluded groups
  • Changing dysfunctional intraracial and interracial behavior that undermine effective partnerships
  • Learning to acknowledge and interrupt the subtle (and often unintentional) dynamics that play out between “modern” forms of oppression and “internalized oppression”.

This workshop will be led by a cross-racial, cross gender team of two facilitators, Sarah Stearns and Gene Washington, from Visions, Inc. For more information on Visions, Inc. visit their website: www.visions–inc.org.
