Join us for a two day innovative equity and racial justice training program, hosted by the City Bar and Justiceology-By-Design.  This program is developed as a racial justice lexicon training and narrative-shifting law experience, after the death of George Floyd and more recently, Jacob Blake. 
Justiceology By Design is an innovative approach to traditional DEI training with a focus on the Laws, Policy, and Legislation that has contributed to US Systemic Inequity from Slavery to the New Deal to the Present with a focus on BIPOC America.  The Course is both a narrative-shifting experience that presents primary source historical and legal materials from Bryan Stevenson's work, as well as Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow and Long Shadow of Slavery, informing our anti-racist work as law professionals.

Utilizing Berkeley's Othering and Perception Institute's Narrative Shifting Workshops and Equity By Design, the course has 2 workshops each day. The narrative-shifting workshops are intended to expand our critical consciousness to understand the long history of systemic inequity in housing, criminal law, economics, and voting, to inform our present-day racial crisis. The take-aways from the course will be a set of Equity X Design principles meant to inspire participants own work at law firms, and organizations in terms of culture change, hiring, retention, and develop an anti-racist lexicon.
