Back 2 Basics: Microaggressions – How Does It Work?

Being anti-racist results from a conscious decision to make frequent, consistent, equitable choices daily. These choices require ongoing self-awareness and self-reflection as we move through life. Join us as we demystify anti-racism and examine our mindsets, behaviors and practices that impede us from being actively anti-racist.
