In our most recent webinar presentation co-facilitators Aria Camaione-Lind and Meredith Horsford used the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Alliance as a case study to explore organizational policy that yields antiracist results. Aria and Meredith introduced sample statements and policies that have supported antiracist action at other organizations, and invited conversation and participation around creating statements and policies for organizations in attendance. This webinar is a part of an ongoing collaboration with the Aria Strategies team, with our next program coming up in November.
