Are you Anti-Racist Yet?
“We enter a labyrinth wherever God has provided an opening – telling the truth about our church’s story around race; discerning and proclaiming God’s dream of Beloved Community where we are; learning and practicing Jesus’ way of healing and love; and bravely working to transform systemic racial injustice. We keep moving from one quadrant to another and back. No one is ever really finished. That is the way of ongoing spiritual formation.”
– from Becoming the Beloved Community
The Anti-Racism Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey invites you to join us for our 20-hour online Anti-Racism Training on five (5) consecutive Friday evening Zoom sessions, a self-study program in between the Friday meetings, and a follow-up session four weeks later.
The session costs $100 per person. Our winter dates are:
January 21, January 28, February 4, 11, 18, and March 18
Each week leading up to the Friday Zoom session, participants will complete self-study lessons to fit their own personal schedules. The material consists of recorded lectures, videos, and articles which provide a historical overview of systemic racism in America, its impact on society and on our individual lives.
Participants must attend all sessions to earn a Certificate of Completion.
The Anti-Racism Commission is a group of dedicated anti-racists who are working to help dismantle systemic racism, inequality, and injustice in our church and in society.
If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Rev. Ted Moore, co-chair of the Anti-Racism Commission.
“A vital, relevant and soul searching training. I gained a wealth of knowledge from history never taught with plenty of resources to keep me engaged. I applaud the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of New Jersey for tackling this insidious problem in a nuanced, Christ-like way. I am recommending this training to family and friends.”
