The past several years has sparked national mobilization and reckoning on racial equity. To that end, AFSCME adopted Resolutions recommitting itself to “confronting and taking active measures to “address racism in our union and in America” and resolving to “examine our own institutions, procedures, and cultures to identify and address bias.” COURAGE to be Stronger is our union’s program to carry out this commitment.

As a result of this program, thousands of AFSCME staff and union members from across the country have been trained and equipped with strategies and resources to reduce and interrupt implicit bias, which we define as a preference for or prejudice against a person or a group of people.

AFSCME's Beyond Bias Training has three main objectives:

# 1 – Increase awareness and understanding regarding the science of implicit bias;

# 2 – Share examples of how implicit bias shows up in daily life, including the workplace.

# 3 – Practice strategies for reducing and interrupting implicit bias.
