Womanspace is committed to antiracism, believing it to be intricately linked to our work with victims and survivors of interpersonal violence. “A New Vision of Womanspace: Dismantling Racism and Realizing a Just Organization” is our newest project that will take us on a journey that will elevate our work and lead us to a stronger and more inclusive agency. Womanspace is proud to invite you to a very exciting workshop to launch our project, featuring two leaders in the field, Dr. Ibram Kendi author of the best-selling book, “How to be Antiracist” and Dr. Michelle Harper, author of best-selling “The Beauty in Breaking.” Their short biographies follow. To help develop this project, we’ve contracted with Sandy Ewell, co-founder and President of the Common Ground Institute, LLC. Sandy has worked closely with Womanspace and will serve as our guide in the coming months to work towards ensuring our success as we strive to achieve our goals of increasing inclusion and creating a more just and antiracist organization. This event will be held on March24th, beginning at 9:30am.Please register by following the link below. Space is very limited so please make sure to register as soon as possible to ensure your spot!
