Region 8 Racial Justice Training Series

August 18, 2022 - February 12, 2023

The ELCA’s Region 8 is committed to equipping leaders to recognize and understand the complexities and implications of racism and racial issues and is offering training in the areas of anti-racism and racial justice for leaders in partnership with synods, congregations, associations, and social service agencies.

Region 8’s Racial Justice Training equips leaders (rostered and lay) to face the challenges of racism in a diverse, complex and changing world by providing tools and resources that foster healthy and holy conversations.  The next session will be held on May 13 from Noon – 5:00 PM. Register below.

Each workshop addresses these aspects of racism:

  1. Talking about Race: language and vocabulary
  2. History and systemic racism in the United States, and
  3. How to begin conversations and actions in your ministry context.

Each quarterly training is offered on Zoom using a combination of instruction and small group conversation. Facilitators will represent the region to the extent possible, spearheaded by the Reverend Carla Christopher Wilson. Cost is $25 per person; however, if cost is a barrier, please contact Marty Shifflett at mshifflett@lss-elca.org, or 717-652-1852, ext. 115.
