Make Space for Race: Reducing the Effects of Racism in Public Education

3 hours running time

This webinar will be held July 28th, 9:00AM-12:00PM. A recorded version will be available after.
Based in the Healthy Environments and Response to Trauma in Schools (HEARTS) framework, this workshop will utilize the core guiding principle of Cultural Humility and Equity to discuss ways that we can counteract the trauma-inducing forces of institutionalized, personally mediated, and internalized racism.

This workshop will go beyond recognizing implicit bias to consider actions that participants can take in their own spheres of influence to mitigate harm and promote change. There will be time for individual reflection as well as opportunities to talk with colleagues as we identify specific strategies and plans for building a more equitable future.


Martha Merchant, licensed psychologist, who is currently a consultant with UCSF HEARTS in several school-based projects. She provides training, consultation, and support for adult members of the students’ caregiving system (teachers, school staff and parents/families) to create more trauma-sensitive, safe, and supportive school environments.
