2021 VIRTUAL ANTI-RACISM TRAINING
The Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey Anti-Racism Ministry invites you to take advantage of these sequestered and less scheduled days to enroll in 20 hours of virtual Anti-Racism Training streamed to your computer, tablet or mobile phone. The training takes a historical approach to help participants understand systemic racism and empower them to confront and organize against racism, inequality, and injustice.
Lecture and discussion topics include “What is Race?”, “Systemic Racism and White Privilege,” “Internalized Racism,” “The Role of the Church,” “Settler Colonialism,” “Racism in Immigration and Naturalization Legislation,” and “The Prison Industrial Complex.”
Four training sessions are scheduled for 2021. Each session consists of five two-hour live interactive discussions via Zoom on consecutive Friday evenings and a follow-up debrief session a month later. After each Friday session, participants will be presented with recorded lectures and print, video and audio lessons via Moodle, an online training platform.
The 2021 schedule is:
· January 29 to February 26 with a follow-up on March 26
· April 16 to May 14 with a follow-up on June 11
· June 18 to July 16 with a follow-up on August 13
· August 20 to September 17 with a follow-up on October 15
Registration is now open for the session beginning in January. The non-refundable fee for the course is $100.
