What Can I Expect at the Workshop?
Two weeks prior to the workshop, participants receive online preparatory work consisting of a few videos and conceptual questions that should be completed before attending the workshop sessions. The in-person workshop occurs over four evenings, Mondays and Thursdays, January 22, 25, 29, and February 1 from 7-10pm. Starting with prayer, participants discuss topics related to this material in both small and large groups. All workshops are guided by trained facilitators who manage the discussions by ensuring that everyone has a chance to speak in a timely and respectful manner. The privacy of each participant is always honored and discussions are kept in confidence within each group.
From the Diocesan website:
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 online winter workshop which occurs across four evenings. 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. (There is a $25.00 registration fee for members of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark and a $50.00 fee for all others.)
Transportation reimbursement is available.
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. Register today!
