Conversations 2 End Racism, a Two-day Overview Study: March 5-6, 2021
This brief exploration into the extensive topic of racism offers an intensive historic overview, in-depth conversations, multiple media resources, and a unique, Spirit-centered community approach. To foster a deep connection, groups will consist of at least 8 but no more than 20. Participants will be expected to prepare “homework” one week before we meet to lay a foundation for this transformative work.
This event is for everyone, including clergy. For clergy who want continuing education credits, this program counts as 20 hours. There will be 8 hours of pre-work, 4 hours in person Friday followed by 4 hours of “homework” Friday night, and the final 4-hour session on Saturday.
