Racial Justice Institute

August 16 @ 8:30 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm


YWCA Lancaster will hold its annual Racial Justice Institute on Wednesday, August 16, through Friday, August 18 (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day).  This intensive 3-day workshop 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. It is led by cultural bridges to justice, a national consortium of highly effective trainers. jona olsson and Achebe Betty Powell have delivered the Institute to the Lancaster community for more than 10 years. Participants will realize a better understanding of the separate experiences, work, and responsibilities of People of Color or White People. They will be introduced to a fundamental anti-racist, multi-cultural, organizational/institutional analysis model and leave the institute with a tangible plan of action for themselves and/or their “change team.”

The Institute will be held at First United Methodist Church in downtown Lancaster (29 East Walnut Street).

Continental breakfast, refreshments, snacks, and lunch will be provided.

Scholarships are available.
