Racial Justice Institute – Part I
December 5 @ 8:30 am - December 7 @ 5:00 pm
YWCA Lancaster, in partnership with the Lancaster Theological Seminary, presents the Racial Justice Institute, Part I. This three-day workshop takes place Wednesday December 5 through Wednesday 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 be equipped with 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.”
Continental breakfast, refreshments, snacks, and lunch will be provided as 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.
