Upcoming Antiracism Trainings
In 2000, The General Convention of the Episcopal Church passed a resolution that said, “Resolved: That beginning on September 1, 2000 the lay and ordained leadership of the Episcopal Church, including all ordained persons, professional staff, and those elected or appointed to positions of leadership on committees, commissions, agencies, and boards be required to take anti-racism training and receive certification of such training…” In 2007, the Convention of the Diocese of Central New York affirmed this resolution, and in 2009, The General Convention of The Episcopal Church passed a resolution recommitting to this work.
The CNY Antiracism Team offers a one-day Anti-Racism training workshop to support Central New York leaders comply with this resolution.
