As part of our ongoing education about how best to serve the children and families in our community, CSC has adapted our workshop on Understanding Racism and Implicit Bias for the larger community.
This workshop summarizes the history and structures of racism in the United States and in Broward County and how these structures perpetuate racism, racially disparate outcomes and implicit racial bias.
Strategies to restructure our community and address implicit bias are discussed throughout the workshop.
Broward Partners for Racial Equity: Broward anchor institutions who are committed to racial equity in our county have created the Broward Partners for Racial Equity (BPRE). Partners meet monthly to (1) ensure training on
dismantling racism is available to community partners and to (2) share ways our organizations are beginning to operationalize equity. Please contact Keisha Grey at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
