Undoing Racism Discussions
The ANTIRACISTALLIANCE is a movement for racial equity. We are an organizing collective of human service practitioners and educators whose vision is to bring a clear and deliberate anti-racist structural power analysis to social service education and practice.
We work to undo structural racism from a common understanding as presented by the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond in the Undoing Racism Workshop. The People's Institute is recognized as one of the foremost anti-racism training and organizing institutions in the nation. It moves beyond a focus on the symptoms of racism to an understanding of what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. In the New York region, The People's Institute organizes not only with social work educators and human service providers but with school teachers, parents and youth, health care providers, criminal justice advocates, and the faith community.

Ron Chisom, leader to a national undoing racism movement is co-founder of the PISAB and a senior fellow of Ashoka's Global Academy for men and women changing solutions for the world's most urgent social problems.
The Undoing Racism Workshop is included in 2002 Aspen Institute Survey for its exemplary practice in transforming individuals, group dynamics and social structures.
We recognize that structural inequalities in society result in differential access to and distribution of power (economic, political, social, and cultural) for groups of people. We believe that the elimination of structural inequalities, the establishment of policies to ensure equity and accountability to people of color defines antiracist social work practice.
