The North Central & South Central Regions are collaborating to offer a series of three films, with facilitated conversation to follow, as a way to explore race and racism. The desire is to commit to viewing the movies and some of the panel discussions from the Trinity Institute so that we can deeply engage with our own involvement in racism and begin to work together to create beloved community.
The event is free. We ask that you please register in advance for planning purposes.
Season of Racial Healing, Justice & Reconciliation:
Opportunity in the SC Region: Undoing Racism Workshops - New Haven: The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond has been offering workshops for the dismantling of racism in the United States since its founding in 1980. They are "a national and international collective anti-racist, multicultural community organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social transformation."
This year there will be a series of opportunities through the Elm City Undoing Racism Organizing Collective, which is a collaborator with the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, to participate in these three day workshops. All community leaders are invited to participate (if you're reading this you are a community leader!). Workshops will be offered on: September 12-14 and November 8-10. These workshops provide one opportunity to lean into the two year focus of Racial Healing, Justice, and Reconciliation...and there are many others being offered across ECCT! Please contact The Rev.
