Racial Equity & Homelessness: Working Towards Systems Change: Fall 2020
Black, Indigenous and other people of color have been systematically denied equal rights and opportunities to own homes and accrue generational wealth, fair and just treatment from the criminal justice system, and quality and timely healthcare. The effects of that long-standing discrimination linger and perpetuate disparities in wealth, arrests and jail and prison sentences, health care, and safe, stable housing. This convergence of structural racism and discriminatory policies and practices across systems contributes to more people of color, especially Black people, experiencing homelessness.
Homelessness housing and services programs and systems have a responsibility to ensure that they are not, themselves, having a disparate impact on people based on their race or ethnicity. During this four-week live online course, C4’s Regina Cannon and Nastacia' Moore will present and discuss the historical context and provide relevant and practical skills to identify and dismantle racism in your program, agency, and community. Topics will include COVID-19 and racism, racial trauma, how to create and implement culturally responsive services and practices, and how to build a framework for an equitable system.
