NYCI’s Racial Justice training is an invitation to participants to explore, deepen and unpack their understanding of racism. Through critical analysis and personal reflection, it supports participants to realise ways that they can make a difference.
Racial Justice is a lens through which we at NYCI approach our practice. At its heart it is about creating inclusive spaces in which people who experience racism can thrive and have a sense of belonging. It guides us in how we advocate on equitable outcomes for minority ethnic young people. Key to our understanding is an awareness of how wider social injustices impact on young people’s everyday lives. Racial justice is an aspect of social justice, a core value of youth work practice. Key to its realisation is self-reflection and a commitment to action within each person’s circle of influence.
NYCI’s Racial Justice Training aims to support youth workers to become more proactive in tackling racial injustices. It will build youth worker’s understanding on the long-lasting impacts of racism on young people. It will generate reflections on the choices we make and the power we hold as youth workers.
“Racial Justice is the systematic fair treatment of people of all racialised groups. It is not just the absence of discrimination and inequities but is the presence of deliberate systems and supports to achieve and sustain racial justice through proactive and preventative measures.”
