Overview of the Undoing Racism Workshop:

The Undoing Racism™/Community Organizing workshop is an intensive workshop designed to educate, challenge and empower people to undo the structures that hinder effective social change. The workshop is based on the premise that racism has been systematically constructed and that it can be “undone” when people understand what we can to dismantle it.

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond is the only provider of this proprietary training, “Undoing Racism™/Community Organizing.” Our work is based on 36 years of research and work in cross systems with both institutions and communities.The People’s Institute believes that the most effective way to undo racism is through the process of involving community in all decisions that effect it, and empowering the community to interact with those institutions designed to serve it. It uses the principles of community organizing and community empowerment when teaching individual, institutional, and cultural racism.

Key to the uniqueness of The People’s Institute workshop is the importance of doing a power analysis which helps participants understand how communities have been disempowered. This disempowerment is further explored by uncovering the basic reasons for poverty. Without this knowledge, racism is viewed more from a personal level and not from a much broader view which includes institutions, culture and personal.The People’s Institute also spends significant time on the internalization of oppression, including inferiority and superiority, which also makes it unique. Defining racism without those two concepts in the long run will keep racism and disparit outcomes in place.
