Eight trained to facilitate conversations on race

The Massachusetts Conference recently hosted an intensive, five-day racial justice facilitator training workshop which was attended by five people from the Massachusetts Conference and three from the Rhode Island Conference.

The program was led by Da Vita “Day” McCallister, Associate Conference Minister of Leadership and Vitality in the Connecticut Conference. The Connecticut Conference has been a leader in the area of racial justice, and the boards of the three Conferences recently affirmed a desire to bring the work from Connecticut to Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  

The eight facilitators trained through this program will be responsible for offering Sacred Conversations on Race and Racial Justice training with congregations and communities.  Three Massachusetts Conference Associate Conference Ministers - Kelly Gallagher, Dawn Hammond and Don Remick - went through the training over the summer.

The following took part in this training: from Massachusetts: Patricia Hayes, Elizabeth Magill, Cynthia Maybeck, Russ Vernon-Jones, Bradford Watters; from Rhode Island: Jametta Alston, Kathleen Henry, Nancy Hamlin Soukup.
