Rise Above the Noise is one of the most timely and contemporary professional development opportunities regarding race relations today! 
Our country's health depends on your participation and awareness. 

One of the unique and valuable pieces of this training is that is essentially 'race-specific'. This creates a safe and supportive space for people from similar racial backgrounds to explore tough issues related to race, racism, white privilege and the influence of negative media stereotypes, without offending someone from another racial or ethnic background.
