On September 21, 2015, the Central Jersey Consortium for Excellence and Equity in conjunction with the School of Education at Monmouth University participated in a full-day training workshop with anti-racist activist, researcher, and educator Tim Wise.

Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including the 2013 Media Education Foundation release, White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America. Additionally, Wise has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs, is a regular contributor to discussions about race on CNN, and has been featured on ABC’s 20/20.

Teachers, school counselors, administrators, and other school personnel from numerous districts in Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex counties partook in this educational training on understanding race and privilege in the United States.
