JCOIN EDI Anti-Racism Training with the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB)

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB), is a national and international collective of antiracist, multicultural community organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social transformation. The PISAB believes that racism is the primary barrier preventing communities from building effective coalitions and overcoming institutionalized oppression and inequities. The PISAB helps individuals, communities, organizations and institutions move beyond addressing the symptoms of racism to undoing the root causes of racism so as to create a more just and equitable society.

In this training workshop, participants will experience the process for laying a foundation to explore how we have been socialized and conditioned to think about race and racism by first analyzing class, power and institutional/individual relationships to and within communities. As power is analyzed concepts will be introduced that play a role in maintaining the current disparate racial outcomes that every system and institution produces. The JCOIN EDI team believes that this training workshop will provide meaningful information that will allow us to reflect on how to better integrate equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging in our research, as well in within each hub. This will be an opportunity to engage in equity- focused conversations with members across JCOIN to better address EDI throughout the network.

Please note, both training workshops are identical. You are only permitted to attend one training. In order to attend, you must commit to participate in the full 6-hour training. Registration for this training workshop is limited. We kindly ask that if you are unable to commit to the full training day (6 hours), please refrain from registering. Given the limited space in both training workshops, we are requesting that you pre-register if interested in attending. Once your pre-registration has been reviewed, we will inform you via email if you are able to attend the PISAB workshop. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

It is our hope to have diverse participation from all JCOIN research hubs, the MAARC and CTC!
