The purpose of the diocesan Anti-Racism Workshop is to help us become aware of how the sin of racism impacts ALL our lives, and how we all unconsciously and consciously participate in racist systems. We generally conduct three workshops a year in the fall, winter, and spring. All workshops require pre-work which includes viewing videos and completing online exercises. Dialogue is the foundation of the two-day in-person workshop (9:00 – 4:00) in the spring and fall, as well as the online winter workshop which occurs across several evenings starting at 7 PM. We use group exercises and examine scientific and historical evidence (video format) concerning the origins of the concept of race and its legacy. There is no cost to register and attend for members of our diocese. We ask for a registration fee of $25.00 for members of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark and $50.00 fee for all others. At our in-person workshop continental breakfast and lunch are provided.
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. Recently we have made our workshops more accessible to monolingual Spanish speakers and individuals who require ASL interpretation. This requires planning in advance so email Roberta Todd @ email@example.com, if you foresee a need for a workshop that includes interpretation, so that the committee can work with you to make this happens.
We're sorry, but registrations are now closed. To be placed on the waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
