Explore the impact that White Privilege and Racism has had on poverty and hunger within our communities. As a result of racial policies and laws within our country that date back to colonial times, our communities have developed to the detriment of people of color. Although there have been improvements over time, many of our communities remain racially segregated. We will engage the workshop participants on how White Privilege and bias has influences policies and decisions within their communities and other areas in our country regarding: housing, education and economic opportunities. The goal of the workshop is for the participants to have a greater understanding of White Privilege, the influence it can have on creating racial disparities in communities and how we can respond on both an individual and policy level.
