Join us for an overview of the state of poverty and a focused discussion on how poverty, culture, and race intersect. This interactive workshop will lead participants to explore assumptions, misperceptions, stigma, stereotypes, and biases about the causes of poverty and systemic racism.
This workshop for youth workers focuses on understanding what poverty is, how it functions with racism, and what youth servings organizations can do to advance its efforts to engage meaningful conversations around race, support equity and inclusive economic growth.
- gain a clearer understanding of the role race plays in maintaining poverty;
- identify and unpack the systems external to the community that create the internal realities people experience daily; and
- learn to view their communities with a wider lens and become more effective in delivering services.
