This dynamic and inclusive training initiative is designed to provide our community with the tools they need to identify and combat racism at all levels. The initiative seeks to provide robust interactive training with a variety of experts intended to cultivate your inner antiracist. Over the course of two months, events will be held to listen and learn about how we as a community can eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
The Capital Region Antiracism Training Initiative is asking everyone participating at any step in the process to sign up for the email newsletter. The group will send out regular updates including event information, reading and watching resources and more.

21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge
August 10 – 31
In collaboration with the United Way of the Greater Capital Region, this challenge is designed to further understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity. Developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr., Debby Irving and Dr. Marguerite Penick-Parks, this 21-Day Challenge has been adapted by organizations across the country. It is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits.
By signing up to take part, you will receive weekly emails with each day’s challenge. Communities around the country have conducted the curriculum which includes daily suggestions for readings, podcasts, videos, observations, and ways to form and deepen community connections.
