Dismantling Racism Training
August 29 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
August 29 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
“…For us Americans, the chief struggle that grips us daily is racism, from within us and from whatever direction it attacks us. We cannot deal with this unless we are open to the Spirit of truth, and we cannot dare to be open to that Spirit unless we trust in the justice and mercy of God,” wrote Bishop Breidenthal upon the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, at the hands of white police in Minneapolis.
One way that the Diocese of Southern Ohio addresses the racism within us and around us is through anti-racism training, called Dismantling Racism. The training is required of diocesan leaders, including members of commissions and committees, church staff, and vestry members. Training is a two step process:
1. Before registering for the workshop, view one of the videos in the Racial Justice section on the DSO Learning Site https://dsolearning.org/courses-list/#racialjustice. You will be asked for feedback on the video on your registration form.
2. Register for the Zoom training on Saturday, August 29. You will be sent a link to the training after you have registered.
