Update – Racial Equity Groundwater Presentation Postponed

This event has been postponed, and more information will be posted to this site as soon as it is rescheduled.

This exciting (free) training is filling up fast! The Safety and Justice Challenge Racial Equity workgroup is excited to host the Racial Equity Institute (REI) as they bring one of their trainings, the Groundwater Presentation, to Buncombe County.  The Groundwater presentation is an introduction to Racial Equity. REI’s trainings are specifically designed to help leaders and organizations who want to both understand and address racism in their communities and within their internal organizations. The Groundwater presentation will help start that process and give an overview of racial equity work. REI presenters “will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant.”

All Bar members are invited join us as we learn about how to address Racial Equity in our county and criminal justice system.

Our REI Groundwater training will be held the week of March 23rd. Due to the high demand, we want to prioritize this training to members of the JRAC, the 28th Judicial District Defense Bar, and City and County Government leaders and department heads.  Please RSVP by March 13th.  We will open it up for other parties to RSVP by March 20th.  You only need to attend one training and you must register with Eventbrite, below.
