In this session, participants will explore how implicit biases and microaggressions are formed and the ways they impact people of color. All community members have biases and those biases can turn into racial microaggressions that harm people of color. It is important that we examine these biases so that we can learn to stop them. Recognizing them also gives us a window into larger structural problems.
