The California Association of Human Relations Organizations (CAHRO) will be hosting a series of workshops in November. We hope you will join us and be a part of our work to strengthen the infrastructure of human relations organizations in California.

“Cross-Racial Organizing for Racial Equity”

  • Glenn Harris, President of the Center for Social Inclusion
  • Scot Nakagawa, Partner in ChangeLab

Co-hosted by the Government Alliance on Race and Equity and the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, with welcoming remarks from Commission Chair Susan Belinda Christian.

Racial inequities exist across all indicators for success — education, jobs, housing, neighborhoods, criminal justice, health and more. Unless we are proactively working for racial equity, we will be replicating the status quo. This workshop will feature two of the preeminent thinkers in the country — Glenn Harris, President of the Center for Social Inclusion, and Scott Nakagawa, Partner in ChangeLab. Glenn and Scott will share their latest thinking about the strategies and skills needed to build a movement for racial equity, and will lead an engaging conversation about:

  • What does a coming “new majority” people of color in California mean for racial equity? How do we do cross-racial, cross-sector organizing?
  • What are the roles for human relations organizations? Government? Community?
  • How do we proactively address race and build a sustainable movement for change?

The workshop is sponsored by the California Association of Human Relations Organizations and Alameda Human Relations Commission and funded through a grant from the California Endowment.
