Testimonials from previous participants:

“The Jubilee III experience far surpassed what I had been expecting. First Unitarian Church of Honolulu had participated in two previous in-person Jubilees and I just couldn’t imagine a virtual experience being so successful. It became obvious that the trainers had gone above and beyond in preparation; the virtual experience was, in some ways, better because of the face-to-face feeling of intimacy on screen that can happen even when someone speaks to the whole group, the close honesty afforded by break-out rooms, and the relatively long meal breaks, which make one feel totally refreshed and able to think clearly for the next session.
     Also, it became clear that a lot of effort had gone into honing and making the curriculum itself even better than before. It was like peeling an onion; we were able to delve into new and deeper levels of understanding.
     Thank you to the trainers for this great opportunity to gain crucial points of awareness around racial justice!”  ~ Jill Rabinov

“First Unitarian Church of Honolulu (FUCH) is honored to have experienced the first virtual Zoom Jubilee training. This was our third Jubilee Anti-Racism training and I was curious how the Zoom Format would work for such a hands on and self-reflective experience. Although we were using the Zoom format we still had the benefit and feel of getting to know other Jubilee members on a more personal level. 
     This training was extremely informative and worthwhile, covering new material that we did not receive in the previous 2 Jubilee trainings. This training will give you a lot of food for thought as well as tools to use in these challenging times.”  ~ Allison Jacobs
