A Beacon of Hope Guiding Leaders, Congregations, and Communities

Introduction to Systemic Racism Workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the idea that racism is a systemic, institutional problem of power and to create the rationale for a structural intervention to dismantle it. To address the racism present in our world, we must first learn how it was born, nurtured, and grew into the manifestations we see today. Racism is not just out there in the world and in our country, racism is also present in and impacts our neighborhoods and our congregations.
