About The Event
We are excited to journey with our youth to live into our Baptismal Covenant to seek justice by dismantling racism. Throughout the weekend our youth will have the opportunity to look at racism through the lens of faith, our nation's history, our privileges, and our internalized oppression. We will end the weekend with a discussion on reconciliation.
The Dismantling Racism curriculum for youth created by the Diocese of Atlanta and Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing will be what is used as the teaching tools. Prior to the weekend an email will be sent to parents of registered youth discussing in detail what topics we will be covered.
Cost: $75, per youth. Includes lodging, meals, and program. Registration is through CampDoc software. Youth must commit to the entire weekend.
