 Authorized clergy and MIDs  are welcome to join us for this 3-1/2 hour, on-line Racial Justice 101 training facilitated by Rev. James D. Ross II, Minister for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Completed session may apply toward racial justice training requirements for clergy.

The Racial Justice 101 workshop is designed as an overview session, grounded in the articulations of Christian faith and the belief that faithfulness to God mandates that we all work to bring forth justice for all of God’s people. It offers an introduction to racial formation; invites participants to consider the role of our country’s founding documents in constructing and framing U.S. racial realities; explores contemporary issues of racism; and introduces shared language for discussions of white supremacy. Throughout the workshop, participants are urged to use the lens of their faith and current ministry settings as they think about what they are learning.

The sessions include presentations by the facilitator, large and small group discussions, and audio and video materials. Specific course materials vary based on latest developments in news, public policy and the determined needs of the people registered for the session.

This workshop is appropriate both for individuals who are new to thinking about race, racism, and white supremacy, as well as those who have engaged in this work and seek a refresher or an opportunity to learn from the perspectives and experiences of others. Each participant will receive a certificate of participation.

The cost to attend is $10. Scholarships are available; contact methotk@sneucc.org.
