Three anti-racist trainings I’ve completed and recommend:
Training Workbook by Layla Saad
This superb 28-day journey includes study, journaling and motivation to confront personal values, behavior and remedies to racism. For me, it’s been the most effective so far.
My key learning: Sometimes I unfortunately have remained silent in the face of racist comments in a professional setting. Now I push back.
Time: averages 30-40 minutes per lesson
Cost: approx. $20

This 21-day course is structured around an audio/video recording that defines the issue, an article for deeper exploration, questions to ask and actions we can do.
My key learning: Schools skim over the truth about enslavement, reconstruction, lynching and Jim Crow. Without knowing this evil history we cannot see how much we white people owe to Black Americans. Now I study this history daily.
Time: averages 20-45 min. per lesson

Newly developed by the Orange County (CA) Human Relations Council
My key insight: For 10+ years as a kid I was exposed to daily TV full of negative and demeaning stereotypes of Black and Latinx people. This has warped my unconscious thought even until today. Now I stay vigilant to short-circuit my own hidden bias.
Time: 2 three-hour sessions
