Anti-Racism Training Workshop, Wappingers Falls (Mid-Hudson Region)
Fri, September 20, 2019 - Sat, September 21, 2019
The purpose of the Diocesan antiracism workshops is to help us become aware of how the sin of racism impacts all of our lives, and how we all unconsciously and consciously participate in racist systems. It is required for clergy in our diocese and highly recommended for lay leadership.
Dialog is the foundation of the two-day workshop (9:00 -4:00). We use group exercises and examine scientific and historical evidence concerning the origins of the concept of race and its legacy. Coffee and lunch are served and there is no cost to register and attend for members of our diocese. There is a $25.00 registration fee for members of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark and a $50.00 fee for all others.
Of the hundreds of workshop participants, more than 85% have found the workshop to be “very useful” or “extremely useful” in their work and daily lives.
