We hosted the first Understanding & Undoing Racism/Community Organizing Workshop in New London, CT, in over 10 years. Parents, students, and allies from SUNL, the NAACP New London Chapter, Safe Futures, FRESH New London, All Souls Unitarian Universalist, Hearing Youth Voices, and more participated in this 2 ½ day workshop. This workshop marked the beginning of our standard of developing an understanding of the dynamics of internalized, institutional, and systemic racism to help in areas of setting priorities, making decisions, and creating system change
