Cultural Awareness/Anti-Black Racism Education and Guidance Healing Workshop
UPlift Black is dedicated to working within the classrooms to help create safe and inclusive spaces that ALL students can thrive in. Our goal is to achieve true equity through a conscious and UPlifted community.
Through extensive research we know that Black students and educators have been targets of anti-Black racism and descrimination, check out reports conducted by Parents of Black Children. (https://parentsofblackchildren.org/media-publications/reports/)
UPlift Black can help eradicate racism and discrimination in your classroom and school and help educators become champions for systemic change.
If your classroom/school has reported incidents of harm for Black students, then it is imperative that you take action now and book UPlift Black Students educational workshop and Healing Circle now.
Our Healing Circle includes African Libations, smudging and historic teachings guided by our Black and Afro-Indigenous UPlifters. In order for us to move forward, we need to look at our complicated history, so we can understand how words/behaviours are harmful and discriminatory. In our Healing Circle, we give all parties (involved in the incident) an opportunity to use their voice in a safe environment to work towards reconciliation and healing. All students are required to participate in the Healing Circle in order to limit further harm in the classroom and school.
Recommend Healing Circle Visits: (3) to complete follow up and next steps to work towards healing and understanding.
1 hour each visit.
