About the Event

We are building a cohort of trainers to facilitate this curriculum. Therefore, we want potential trainers to be exposed to the curriculum before being trained to facilitate it. We are offering a free Beyond Divide and Conquer: Unite and Build Racial Equity Training on January 18-21, 2022, from 12 pm-2:30 CST daily for those participants who are new to this training. The date for the TOT is set for March 21-24, 2022 and we ask you to reserve full work days although we will not be on zoom for the entire day. The application deadline for the TOT is January 15, 2022. Please review the criteria before applying. Visit for more information on how to register for the trainings and apply for the TOT.

The Beyond Divide and Conquer: Unite and Build Racial Equity Training explores how the social construct of race was created to divide and conquer people (especially poor whites and people of color). Using first-person historical narratives, the training asks the question, “What is the cost of racism for people of color?”, “How does racism impact white people?”, and “How we can resist the divide and conquer strategy in order to unite and build?”.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW: ➔ A look at personal, institutional, cultural, & structural racism & the role of power using first person historical narratives ➔ Connecting racism & classism ➔ The construct of race in the age of the twin pandemics—racism & COVID-19 ➔ Internalized racial superiority & inferiority ➔ The cost of racism to all of us, how it has been used to divide us, & how we can resist by uniting & building ➔ The 6 Principles & 6 Steps of Kingian Nonviolence & the role of nonviolence in response to centuries of state-sanctioned violence against Black & Brown bodies & dreams ➔ Creating an individual and/or collective plan of action for Black lives.
