Breakout sessions will include: 

Racial Justice is Real:
In 1964, Sister Fannie Lou Hamer proclaimed she was sick and tired of being sick and tired. These famous words were in reference to being treated as a second-class citizen in this country. Despite decades of culture shifts and policy changes, prejudices against communities of color has intensified. This workshop will take a look at how specific changes throughout history have had negative effects on communities of color and how we can support efforts to fight back. Participants will look at what racial justice means for our work in the union and the labor movement and how we as people of color, activists and allies can bring about positive change for our members and their families.

Community Activism:
This course will focus on building our AFGE Members into Community Activist who will work to mobilize around Racial, Social, and Economic based justice issues that many of our AFGE Members are faced with not only in their workplaces, but also within their communities. This training will prepare AFGE to promote our AFGE legislative and political efforts to elect candidates that are true representatives of Labor, Civil, and Human Rights at all levels of the political spectrum.

Reasonable Accommodations:
This two-hour webinar covers the Reasonable Accommodation Process for employees which will include the EEO definition of disability, the ADA and ADAA, the types of accommodations available, and how to establish an EEO case if the Agency fails to provide a reasonable accommodation.

EEO Timeline & Basics Overview:
This session will focus on the EEO timelines and overview of the EEO Proces.

EEO Retaliation:
This session will focus on the EEO retaliation and ways to address EEO retaliation.

Implicit Bias and Microaggressions:
This event will expose participants to how to support diversity and inclusion in the workplace and how to battle issues that stifle diversity and inclusion such as implicit bias and microaggressions.

How to Be an Ally:
This training will provide participants with insights on how they can use their personal power and privilege to be an ally to historically oppressed and/or marginalized communities in their union and their workplace. They will be exposed to how to be an ally to communities of color, women, those who are differently-abled, and LGBTQ+ identifying individuals.
