On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which resulted in the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans. They were charged with no crime. The cause of their imprisonment was their ancestry.

2018 Unding Institutionalized Racism Workshop
Feb 8 @ 9:00 am – Feb 9 @ 5:00 pm

The People’s Institute Northwest (PINW) has posted the 2018 Undoing Institutionalized Racism (UIR) Workshop schedule for the Seattle and Snohomish County regions on their website at www.pinwseattle.org. The Portland regional workshop dates are still being worked out. Once I have the dates for Portland, I will send out another notification.

The dates for the Seattle are:

February 8th & 9th
March 21st & 22nd
May 17th & 18th
July 19th & 20th
September 20th & 21st
November 8th & 9th
December 13th & 14th

The dates for Snohomish County are:

February 15th & 16th
April 2nd & 3rd
June 16th & 17th
October 4th & 5th
December 3rd & 4th

PLEASE NOTE THE SNOHOMISH COUNTY WORKSHOPS ARE FOR RESIDENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT RESIDE WITHIN SNOHOMISH COUNTY.

The Undoing Institutionalized Racism Workshop is an intensive two-day workshop designed to educate, challenge and empower people to “undo” the racist structures that hinder effective social change. The training is based on the premise that racism has been systematically erected and that it can be “undone” if people understand where it comes from, how it functions and why it is perpetuated.

This workshop is offered by The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB), a national multiracial, antiracist collective of veteran organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social change. The People’s Institute was founded in 1980, has trained thousands of people in hundreds of communities throughout the United States, and is recognized nationally for the quality of its training.

The workshop addresses the following areas:

Analyzing Power – Effective organizing requires accurate analysis. Analysis includes the systems that keep racism in place. The training examines why people are poor, how institutions and organizations perpetuate the imbalance of power, and who is responsible for maintaining the status quo.

Defining Racism – In order to undo racism, it must be understood. Organizers and educators who intend to build effective coalitions need to be very clear about what racism is and what it is not in order to avoid serious strategic and tactical errors.

Understanding the Manifestations of Racism – Racism operates in more than just individual and institutional settings. The dynamics of cultural racism, linguistic racism, and militarism as applied racism are examined.

Learning from History – Racism has distorted, suppressed and denied the histories of people of color and white people as well. A correct knowledge of history is a necessary organizing tool as well as a source of personal and collective empowerment.

Sharing Culture – One of the most effective methods of oppression is to deny a people its history and culture. The training process strongly emphasizes “cultural sharing” as a critical organizing tool.

Organizing to Undo Racism – How can communities achieve concrete results in dismantling the structures of racism? The principles of effective organizing, the process of community empowerment, the techniques of effective strategizing and the internal dynamics of leadership development are explored.

The UIR workshop is generally two days in duration, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and typically geared to 30-40 participants. Participants are asked to commit to the full two days of the session.
The curriculum is presented in stages, each stage building upon the previous stage.

The cost of the workshop is $350.00 per person. Payment can be made via Paypal at the end of registration OR you can send a check made payable to People’s Institute Northwest, P.O. Box 47437, Seattle, Washington 98146.

You also have the option to pay by phone using a credit card. Please contact Debbie Green directly on 206.938.1023. An electronic receipt will be sent to you once payment is processed.

Refunds will be issued up to three weeks prior to the workshop. Following that date, no refund will be given, however, funds will be credited toward your next registration.

You can register online at http://www.pinwseattle.org/ OR contact Debbie Green at pinwseattle@yahoo.com only if the online registration is closed. You will be sent a confirmation letter four (4) weeks prior to the start date of the workshop.

Please call if in doubt of your status. Sessions fill up quickly and are limited to 40 participants. Please check on availability prior to last minute registration. Questions? Contact The People’s Institute Northwest office at 206-938-1023 or via email at pinwseattle@yahoo.com.

EXPECT YOU TO BE ON TIME AND STAY UNTIL THE EVENT ENDS. Help us spread the
word to other vendors and shoppers. Begin advertising now! If each vendor had a minimum of
ten guests, we would have a good, steady flow.
You will be provided a table and two chairs. You are welcome to bring your own table.
We are working hard to improve attendance by inviting churches and advertising in
newspapers and the radio. Please help by inviting your family and friends to attend the event.
Send copies of our flyer to all of your e-mail and Facebook friends. Invite them immediately, and
remind them to mark their calendars.
Because we wish to avoid food vendors selling the same items, we are accepting the first
vendor who submits an application and the fee. All food vendors must have copies of their food
permits.
We have also scheduled entertainment. Send suggestions.
Attached is a vendor application. You have permission to make copies. Copies can be
downloaded from the website mountzionseattle.org. Remember: spaces will be filled as we get

Each vendor is asked to donate one item to be used as a door prize.
Let’s work hard to make this our best Marketplace and Fair ever.
Thank you to past participants and new participants.

Sincerely,
Georgia S. McDade
