True Colors Training

***Registration is closed due to capacity.  If you are interested in participating in a future True Colors series, please contact us and we’ll add you to our interest list.

Empower Montana and YWCA Missoula are returning in 2017 with the True Colors Training, a series of workshops created in an effort to address the unique challenges faced by people of color, as well as white allies taking action against racism. The True Colors training invites community members to rethink race, history, and community.

“The training acknowledged real and unique experiences, struggles, and stories for people of color,” said a past participant. Another participant added that the curriculum allows people to find one’s own racism “in order to see racism as a behavior, not that they are a bad person.” Focusing on topics such as trauma, intersectionality and identity development, the trainings create a safe and comfortable space for participants to explore, discuss, and challenge ideas. Participants will come away with skills and strategies that can strengthen the relationships within their cultural communities and across cultural lines. Empower Montana and YWCA Missoula seek allies and people of color who have witnessed and experienced racism, and seek to both better understand and work toward racial justice.

All trainings will take place Wednesday evenings, March 8th to April 12th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Payne Family Native American Center. There will not be a True Colors session on March 22nd due to Spring Break.  Room locations will be announced closer to the start date.
