Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing & Training has been engaged in anti-racism organizing and movement building since 1986. Crossroads seeks to dismantle systemic racism and build antiracist multicultural diversity within institutions and communities guided by the following principles:

  • Crossroads seeks to be accountable to those who share a common analysis of racism, and especially to communities of color;
  • Crossroads understands its antiracism work to be part of a global movement for racial justice and social equality;
  • Crossroads recognizes that resistance to racism also requires resistance to all other forms of social inequality and oppression; and
  • The work of Crossroads is based upon a systemic analysis of racism.

Crossroads works with local and county governments, statewide child and family services agencies, public school systems, colleges and universities, national and regional faith-based judicatories, seminaries, national peace and justice initiatives, and local grassroots racial justice organizing groups. Services and workshops include:

  • Speakers and Presentations on a wide range of topics related to race, racism and racial justice. (Available in English, Spanish, or bilingually)
  • Consultations to organizations seeking support for leadership to evaluate policies, procedures and structures of accountability.
  • Introduction to Antiracism Workshop (1-day)—For people familiar with diversity and multiculturalism but not with the concept of institutional or systemic racism. (Also available bilingually in Spanish and English)
  • Analyzing & Understanding Systemic Racism Workshop (2.5 days)—For people ready to take a deeper look at the historical development of racism in the U.S., how it still manifests itself and is perpetuated in institutions today, and how it affects both people of color and white people. (Also available bilingually in Spanish and English)
  • Antiracism Team Formation Training—For institutions that recognize patterns of oppression and the need for change within their own systems and wish to organize internally to break down barriers and create antiracist/anti-oppressive policies, practices and procedures. (Also available bilingually in Spanish and English)
  • Continuing Opportunities for Team Growth—Choose from 11 different workshops for Crossroads-trained antiracism teams to assist in deepening specific organizing skills.
  • Anti-Bias/AntiRacism (ABAR) Workshops—Designed to establish a connection between Crossroads’ Power Analysis and the four goals of Anti-Bias education.
