About The Event
Dismantling Racism Online Series
It is important to be able to commit to the majority of the session (select Thursdays), so please check your ability to participate prior to registering. Dates are listed below.
We are excited to journey with high schoolers as they live into their Baptismal Covenant to seek justice by dismantling racism. Throughout the sessions young adults will have the opportunity to look at racism through the lens of faith, our nation's history, our privileges, and our internalized oppression. The purpose of this course is not to "train you" to be "less" racist but to invite you to examine personal experiences and internal perspective on racism in America.
We will meet via Zoom on Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the dates listed below.
