About this grant
The Anti-Racism Training Institute Network was formed in 2002 to provide effective training and share best practices with organizations working to combat racism. The project focused on creating and nurturing anti-racism, community-building training institutes in Seattle, Albuquerque and Broward County, Florida. Each site has developed unique characteristics related to its locale and area of specialty, while operating within a shared, structured model. The result has been combination of training and organizing using the lens of race, focusing on local issues and linking to a national network of anti-racism organizations.Funding will enable the project to expand and build the national network of anti-racism, community-organizing training institutes. Activities will include convening two site meetings to share experiences and team building; developing various electronic media strategies to serve as learning tools and resources for anti-racism training, workshops and community organizing; creating anti-racism curricula for community-based strategies to address racial and ethnic disparities; and convening a conference of key practitioners committed to eliminating racial disparities in their fields.Originally a project of the Tides Center, the network is now based at the Institute for Democratic Renewal at Claremont Graduate University. Claremont, established in 1925, is an independent institution devoted to graduate study.
