Anti-Racism Training Event

Date: 
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

City:

If you have ever wrestled with the idea of racism, what it is, whether it still is a problem, and how it impacts your life, join us! Even if you have been through anti-racism programs before, we all need frequent refreshers.

Rev. Bryan Smith and Rev. Lindsey Anderson will be leading this 2 1/2 hour program. At the training, we will explore what is meant by racism, a word that is emotionally charged and commonly misunderstood. We will also explore some of the historical and fundamental foundations of racism and how it is destructive to all of us, regardless of race.
