Dismantling Racism Workshop Series for Young Adults
We invite young adults to live into their Baptismal Covenant, to seek justice by dismantling racism by participating in the virtual workshops.
Time & Location

About The Event
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 young adults (college to late 20's) as they live into thier 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 young adults to examine their personal experiences and internal perspective on racism in America.
We will meet via Zoom on select Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the dates listed below.
