As our country faces the devastating consequences of unremitting racism and violence against Black people, we have an opportunity to commit ourselves to learning around racist policies and attitudes in homelessness and how we can shape our work to undo them.

Please join us: Racial Equity Training Series on June 4, 11, 18, 2:30-4:30 pm

Trainers Jeff Olivet and Donald Whitehead will lead a three-part online training series that will:

  • Address the historical and structural context of racism and its connections to homelessness
  • Examine race and homelessness in Western Massachusetts
  • Explore the connections between COVID-19, racial inequity, and homelessness
  • Share approaches other communities have implemented to address racial inequities in their homelessness systems
