The Cassandra Voss Center is excited to host a 6-Part Virtual Anti-Racism Workshop. This is an opportunity for SNC students, faculty, staff, and members of the greater Green Bay community to learn more about anti-racism and to analyze their ideas about race and racism. Our purpose is to help participants develop a deeper understanding of systemic racism and its manifestations on both a structural and interpersonal level. Ultimately, this work is aimed at developing skills to equip members of the St. Norbert College community to work toward racial justice.

This six-part virtual workshop will include a one hour session each week with brief assigned work in between each session. This space is committed to embodying the values of the Cassandra Voss Center, as we are scholarship-driven, welcoming, innovative and fun. We encourage anyone interested to register for this program, regardless of your background or previous knowledge around issues related to anti-racism.

Keynote Speaker: Judge Yadira Rein

Judge Yadira Rein is the first person of color, specifically, the first Latina to serve as judge in the 8th judicial district of Wisconsin. Judge Rein was born in El Paso, Texas and was raised in a small town in northern Mexico by her grandparents. It was there that Judge Rein learned the values of love, sacrifice, and hard work at a young age as she witnessed her grandparents raise a large family. When Judge Rein was nine years old, she moved to Wisconsin where she had to learn to speak English, embraced a new culture and adapt to the cold Wisconsin winters! Judge Rein has been a proud resident of Wisconsin ever since.

While in private practice Judge Rein represented clients throughout a variety of family law issues which included guiding people through what was often the most difficult period in their lives. Judge Rein advocated for children’s best interests as court-appointed Guardian Ad Litem.

This event will be online and you must register to attend. Due to contact restrictions, this program will not be live on FB or anywhere else so please register. Please RSVP by January 14th 2022.
