Anti-Racism Workshop, Goshen (Mid-Hudson Region)
Sat, September 19, 2020 - Sat, September 26, 2020
Note that this workshop takes place on two Saturdays, and not on consecutive days. Each day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The purpose of the diocesan Anti-Racism 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.
Dialogue is the foundation of the two-day workshop. 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.
