This article describes a pilot workshop designed by a social work program to help field educators and their students respond more effectively to two forms of injustice, expressions of racism and religious bigotry (RRB). The workshop comprised an interactive presentation about how to engage clients and colleagues in constructive RRB conversations, foster courageous environments for meaningful conversation, and employ specific strategies for addressing expressions of RRB. The workshop evaluation included focus groups inviting participants to provide feedback on their expectations for the workshop, what they learned, and how the workshop could be improved. Participants provided concrete suggestions for enhancing the workshop.
