Anti-Racism Training Schedule Updated for Fall 2023
“It’s usually the deniers of this that are actually opposed to anti-racism training”—Anti-Racism Commission team member
The reason that the Anti-Racism Commission continues to hold our workshops and our trainings is to give people an idea of how the legacy of slavery still impacts everybody in this country.
The Anti-Racism Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey invites you to enroll in its 20-hour online Anti-Racism Training. The training consists of five consecutive Friday evening two-hour Zoom sessions, a self-study program in between the Friday meetings, and a follow-up session four weeks later. The session costs $100 per person.
Fall 2023 Session: September 22, September 29, October 6, October 13, and October 20 with a follow-up session on November 17.
The training course is led by members of the Anti-Racism Training Team. Each week leading up to the Friday Zoom session, participants will complete online self-study lessons that take roughly two hours per day to complete at times that fit your schedule. The material consists of recorded lectures, videos, and articles that provide you with a historical overview of systemic racism in America to help you understand its impact on society and on individual lives. Participants must attend all sessions to earn a Certificate of Completion.
The Anti-Racism Commission is a group of dedicated anti-racists who are working to help dismantle systemic racism, inequality, and injustice in our church and in our society. In addition to the 20-hour Anti-Racism Training, ARC also makes presentation at convocation meetings, Vestry retreats, and other group meetings; and holds conferences and other events to build a knowledgeable and empowered group of anti-racists.
