Upcoming Antiracism Trainings
The General Convention of the Episcopal Church has resolved that “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….”
The Racial Reconciliation Team offers Antiracism Training as a first step in the process of dismantling racism in the Church and in our culture.
