Jubilee Anti-Racism Training 


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. 

This 2 1/2 day workshop is open to members of any congregation in the Joseph Priestley District.  Church leaders are especially encouraged to attend.


  • To develop a shared analysis of racism and its individual, institutional, and cultural manifestations
  • To begin to apply this common understanding to the history, culture, and institutional structure of our congregation, and to envision next steps

The training includes presentations, discussions, videos, exercises, small group work, worship services, and shared meals.

Fee:  $150 per participant.  Contributions in support of this work are welcome.  Scholarships are available.

When:  Friday, August 21 (6pm to 10pm); Saturday, August 22 (8:30am to 9pm); Sunday, August 23 (8:30am to 5pm)

Agenda Topics Include:

  • The history of racism and resistance to racism in the Americas
  • Defining racism
  • The effects of racism on people of color and on white people
  • Dismantling racism
  • Claiming and shaping an anti-racist identity
