COST: Free Event

VENUE: Washington Peace Center

ADDRESS: 1525 Newton St NW, Washington, DC 20010, USA

Join the Washington Peace Center in identifying systemic and institutional causes and effects of anti-black misogyny. By the end of the training, you'll be able to identify the ways in which interpersonal and intrapersonal racism manifests in the lives of black femmes and women. Additionally, you'll be given tools to address not only our personal anti-black racism against black femmes and women, but also what we encounter as witnesses.

The conversations will be led by black women and femmes. 

Accessibility: We also ask all participants to refrain from wearing any scented products or washing with them on the day of the event to ensure access for people who experience chemical or fragrance sensitivity. We will have all- gender bathrooms for the event, including access to a single-stall bathroom. Both the event space and the bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. If you need interpretation, childcare or additional accommodations, please email or call 202-234-2000 by June 29.

This event is part of the DC Trainers Network training series, hosted each month by the Washington Peace Center. You can see past trainings on the website at
