Anti-racism training scheduled for Hannibal Missouri
The next training is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 20th and 21st, from 8:30 AM-4 PM both days, and will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Hannibal, MO.
There is no cost for this two-day training which includes lunch, beverages and snacks, but registration is required.
The Commission leads a 14-hour training for the Diocese of Missouri, which is mandatory for clergy and wardens, but open to all Christians who wish to deepen their understanding of racism, prejudice, and privilege.
The training 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.
