Dismantling Racism training

The Commission leads a 14 hour training for the Diocese of Missouri. It is mandatory for clergy and wardens in the Diocese of Missouri, but open to every member and all Christians who wish to deepen their understanding of racism, prejudice, and privilege.

The training has been described as engaging, challenging, supporting, uplifting; it is an intense two-day workshop which includes historic and current material, multimedia, small groups, role plays, facilitated dialogue, and spiritual nourishment.

Dismantling racism training was mandated by the 73rd General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2000 (Resolution B049), and the diocesan Commission for Dismantling Racism offers workshops on recognizing and eliminating institutional racism in the Church.

Workshops are free and include lunch and refreshments. Space is limited to forty participants and training will occur with a minimum of fifteen registrations.

Current training and other events are listed on the Dismantling Racism page. The Commission schedules two trainings each year, one in the St. Louis metro area and one in the south, north, or western parts of the diocese.
