Jubilee Anti-Racism Training 
Friday–Sunday, March 2–4 | Led by facilitators from the Central Eastern Region of the UUA

Do you wish to nurture our multicultural future in the face of opposing cultural currents? Do you wish to deepen your understanding of how race and ethnicity play out in our institutions and our daily lives? Jubilee Anti-Racism Training helps participants understand what is involved in nurturing a multicultural community and working against racism in all of its forms.

Goals:

  • To develop a shared analysis of racism and its individual, institutional, and cultural manifestations
  • To begin to apply this common understanding to the history, culture, and institutional structure of our congregation, and to envision next steps

The training includes presentations, discussions, videos, exercises, small group work, worship services, and shared meals.

The workshop requires a weekend commitment, and it is worth every minute. The cost for this workshop  is $155 - assistance with this cost is available if desired (email ).

 

Register here by February 19.
