Repeats every month on January, February, March, December on the first Thursday 5 times.

At this time in our country, having conversations about race can be very challenging.  Oregon AFSCME wants to train and support our members across the state to have these important and difficult conversations.  

To that end, we are training 20 AFSCME members as we launch our council wide Equity Training Institute.  Once trained, members will be able to facilitate trainings in their region, local, steward program, or for other council events.  Our goal is for members to be better equipped as workplace leaders to be an effective voice for racial justice. 

The five-part comprehensive series covers 

  • History of Systematic Racism
  • Implicit Bias
  • Microaggressions
  • Discrimination in the Workplace
  • Building an Antiracist Union

Training Dates:

  • Five monthly 90 minute sessions starting in November to be held on Thursdays:
    • November 5th
    • December 3rd
    • January 7th
    • February 4th
    • March 4th
  • In between each session, members will meet in small groups and with Oregon AFSCME staff
