About the Race Forward Racial Justice Trainings
Over the course of the spring/summer 2020, Erika attended Race Forward’s racial justice trainings, namely Building Racial Equity and Organizing Racial Equity: Shifting Power. These trainings support participants to “address structural racism and advance racial equity” in their sector or institution (Race Forward, 2020). Reflecting on her learnings from these trainings, Erika’s blog post will seek to rise questions and encourage self-reflection on the role of non-profits in advancing racial equity.
