Organizational Change for Racial Justice (OCRJ) Training
Deadline Extended! Applications open through May 20!
The OCRJ Training is a virtual learning series for FSLN members to advance racial justice in all facets of day-to-day organizational life – in organizational culture, operations, strategy, and programming. It is designed for multiracial teams of two to three people who want to develop plans for centering and operationalizing racial justice and racial equity within their organizations. This training will be designed and delivered by Curtis Ogden and Aba Taylor from the Interaction Institute for Social Change, with facilitation support from FSLN members with equity expertise who completed the Facilitating for Racial Justice Work Training.
The ideal team will include members of a new or ongoing Race, Equity, and Inclusion Team. Your team will participate in the OCRJ training as part of a cohort of teams from other organizations, learning alongside each other to design an organizational change process that includes different kinds of learning and planning activities to further racial equity in your work and internally in your organization. Teams must be able to attend all four sessions and complete action items between sessions.

OCRJ is a capacity building offering designed for multiracial teams of two to three people who want to develop plans for advancing racial justice and race equity within their organizations.

About the CORE Project:
The FFRJW and OCRJ Trainings are being offered through the FSLN’s CORE Project– Cultivating and Operationalizing Racial Equity (CORE) in the Food Systems Leadership Network– made possible with generous funding from the Garfield and W.K. Kellogg Foundations. The CORE Project aims to embed racial equity and anti-racism into the Food Systems Leadership Network’s framework for food systems change and build the capacity of network members to operationalize racial equity and anti-racism in their organizations and their program work.
