Have you experienced or witnessed racism and don’t know what to do about it? Do you feel guilty about not doing more at the time? This is very common for people who have experienced or witnessed racism.
If you have experienced any of these things, join our Resilience Against Racism workshops to learn practical tools to empower yourself, so you can deal with racism with confidence and support others dealing with racism.
