Type of event: Training
This event has been Cancelled in order to comply with recommendations that we not gather in groups at this time to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Do you wish to nurture your congregation’s multicultural future in the face of opposing cultural currents? Do you wish to deepen your understanding of how race and ethnicity play out in our institutions and our daily lives.
Jubilee Anti-Racism Training helps participants understand what is involved in nurturing a multicultural community and working against racism in all of its forms. The workshop requires a weekend commitment; and it is worth every minute of that commitment.
WHEN: Friday, April 10th (6:00pm to 9:00pm); Saturday, April 11th (8:15am to 9:00pm); Sunday, April 12th (8:30 to 5:00pm)
FEE: The registration fee is on a sliding scale. Please pay what you are able to pay ($50-$75-$100-$130-$160). Fee includes cost for trainers, meals and materials. The actual cost of this program is $160 per participant (includes cost for trainers, meals and materials), however we are able to offer a sliding scale because of generous budget support of anti-racism programming by First Unitarian Church of Rochester. Contributions in support of this work are welcome.
