Dear Community Members,

Thank you for supporting a life changing, and community changing opportunity- Undoing Racism®

National events have brought the problem of inequity back into the spotlight. Do not feel overwhelmed or hopeless. I know the Central Susquehanna Valley to be compassionate, smart, brave, high spirited, and willing to do hard things- together we can solve problems of inequity in our communities, and lead by example for a better tomorrow. 

Undoing Racism® is training provided by The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond. The organization is based in New Orleans, LA, but they have training centers all over the country. Our closest training center is NYC. They have trained over 500,000 people since the 1980’s. Their focus is mostly on institutional leaders of hospitals, schools, police, those in child welfare or the justice system, community organizations, and business owners.

The goal of the training is to reduce institutional inequities through the 10 Principles of Undoing Racism. We are raising funds to bring this intensive two-day training to our area for Undoing Racism® Community Training.

Cost: $18,000
People trained: up to 40 people (about $450 per person)

Training is available across the country, but the closest training to Central PA is about three hours away... sustained interest in the program may lead to a permanent training center in our area.
