Research has shown that Implicit Bias affects the behavior of all people—no exceptions.  These bias are so ingrained into our subconscious that we are unaware of their presence, yet they influence how we behave.  Implicit bias can cause us to behave in ways that are not harmonious with our strongly held convictions or beliefs.
 
This Implicit Bias workshop, with Dr. David Harris of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law as the keynote speaker, provides the opportunity to learn what implicit bias is and how our behavior may be a result.  While implicit bias is present in most dimensions of life, as anti-racists we desire to be more aware of implicit biases related to race so that our actions do not have to be controlled by them.

This event, hosted by the Western PA Conference Anti-Racism Team, will be at Monroeville UMC.
