What is the People’s Institute?

A national multiracial network of antiracist organizers and educators dedicated to building a movement for justice by ending racism and other forms of institutional oppression. The People’s Institute Undoing Racism Workshop is an intensive 2 ½ day workshop designed to educate, challenge and empower people to “undo” the racist structures that hinder effective social change. Their analysis moves beyond a focus on the symptoms of racism to an understanding of what it is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone.
