Making a real commitment to anti-racism in the fight for justice across organizing, advocacy, and policy platforms is essential to ensuring that we all begin to build the kind of future that truly embraces equity and equality. This commitment requires that we don't just speak about the work, but that we actually do the work as well.

In this workshop, join longtime human rights activist and author of "Towards Humanity: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing," Tawana Petty, as she discusses her theory on moving from solidarity to co-liberation in building anti-racist spaces, how her own work incorporates these principles, and how we can all incorporate anti-racism into our daily lives.
