Event description

Description


YWCA Lancaster and the Lancaster Theological Seminary are partnering to bring you Racial Justice Institute, Part I.

Racial Justice Institute Part I is a prerequisite for Racial Justice Institute Part II, coming in March.

Offered in partnership with the Lancaster Theological Seminary, this introductory three-day workshop takes place Wednesday,December 5, through Friday, December 7, at Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster.

The Institute is an intensive three-day (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily) workshop that gives participants a common understanding of racism and a foundation for beginning to dismantle the institutional and systemic racism that pervades the institutions and organizations in our lives.

Participants will leave equipped with a better understanding of the separate experiences, work, and responsibilities of people of color and white people. They will be introduced to a fundamental anti-racist, multicultural, organizational/institutional analysis model and leave the institute with a tangible plan of action for themselves and/or their “change team.”

Participants work through journals, workbooks, and toolkits that they can use to study, question, and better understand the history, context, and impact of racism on individuals and society. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The Racial Justice Institute is led by cultural bridges to justice, a national consortium of highly effective trainers. jona olsson and Achebe Powell have delivered the Institute to the Lancaster community for more than 20 years. http://www.culturalbridgestojustice.org/programs/racism/racial-justice-institute/
