In this first of a 12-part series, Young Playwrights’ Theater (YPT) Education Director Jared Shamberger and YPT Executive Director Brigitte Winter help define some of the common language and discuss the fundamentals of antiracism.

About AROW:
After undergoing an intense multi-year process to move toward becoming an antiracist, anti-oppressive organization, we know first-hand the pitfalls, stumbling blocks, and rich rewards of such an endeavor. You can read the full story of YPT’s antiracism journey below.
Based on our knowledge and experience, we provide Abolishing Racism and Oppression in the Workplace (AROW). AROW is an initiative that supports companies in implementing meaningful antiracist and anti-oppressive policies and procedures within their own workplace.
Since 2020, we have provided over 200 hours of antiracism consulting for organizations across the Washington, DC region.
