Civic concerns in urban and suburban life are challenged by successful engagement around racial and ethnic issues from past histories that impact our present realities. Racial Sobriety offers an approach that engages racial and ethnic matters challenging the elected official’s bridge-building efforts, community leaders, law enforcement, the courts, and a network of social agencies.

Always open to design a program to address the civic need, the following formats have been successful throughout the country:

Introduction to Racial Sobriety®

This facilitated workshop introduces the audience to a unifying approach to begin the conversation on racism. The experience includes the explanation of the three elements of talking about bigotry that brings on anxiety; facilitates a discussion of finding one’s own voice in the conversation on racial issues; allows for a discovery of one’s Racial History Journal, and introduces other instruments for a continuing understanding of the Racial Sobriety approach. A brief introduction is a two-hour program, while a complete introduction is a four-hour program.
