REI's Groundwater Training: An Introduction to Racial Equity
The Buncombe County Criminal Justice 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 a three hour 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.” Please join us as we learn about how to address Racial Equity in our county and criminal justice system.
