Awareness of racism and response to it in our individual lives and in our communities remains as crucial as ever to the health of both Church and society. This workshop will be one day in length. Participants will be led from an awareness of discrimination to an understanding of racism and other forms of oppression on the personal, interpersonal, institutional and systemic levels.
