Dismantling Racism Workshop -June 22-23

  • Reach Counseling and Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs are partnering to bring together their staffs for a two-day workshop to address building diversity and a racially just culture within their organizations and throughout the Fox valley.  The goal is the elimination of institutional racism and other forms of oppression through education.  “Participating agencies will be given tools to develop an anti-racist culture within their organization.  Agencies will be better equipped to support and affirm the people they serve.” said Lyn Beyer, Executive Director of Reach Counseling.

    Supervisors, advocates, therapists and support staff from the two  agencies will attend:

    • Reach Counseling
    • Harbor House Domestic Abuse Services

    The workshops will be held in Appleton on Thursday, June 22  from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and Friday, June 23 from 8:30 am to 3pm.
