Introduction to Systemic Racism
for Christian Institutions


In this workshop designed especially for members of Christian communities, participants are introduced to the idea that racism is a systemic, institutional problem of power and creates the rationale for a structural intervention to dismantle it. It will specifically examine how racism is at play in the theology, liturgical practices, polity and understanding of church history in Christian institutions such as the local church, denominations, parochial schools, Christian colleges & universities, seminaries, and parachurch organizations. Participants also get a sense that antiracism work does not stop with participating in a workshop; that we also have a strategic methodology to assist people in dismantling racism in their institutions. Attendance with a team from your institution is strongly encouraged.


The cost for the workshop is $95.00

Lunch will be provided

Refund/Cancellation Policy:

95% of registration fee ($90.25) will be refunded if registration is cancelled more than two weeks before the workshop. No refund will be given after Saturday, April 22, 2017.
