24-Hour Racial Justice Training Dates Announced for Winter/Spring 2016
by the Racial Justice Leadership Team
You’re invited to apply to participate in the next 24 hour racial justice training led by Dr. Heather Hackman this spring! This is the last 24 hour training we’ll be offering with Heather Hackman for the foreseeable future.
Through this 24-hour training, you will gain the tools and insights to see and be in the world differently as it relates to racial justice. The training helps give us a shared language to use in our racial justice ministry at First Universalist. After this training, some may feel called to be involved in additional justice work, though that is not a requirement.
The trainings are scheduled for Saturdays, Feb. 6, Feb. 27, and April 9, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Participants are expected to attend all three days and to stay for the entire length of the session. Meals will be provided. We do ask for a donation to help cover some of the costs of the training, as well as the meals.
To apply for this training, please answer the following questions, and send your response to the church’s Administrative Assistant, Chelsea Bertsch, at Chelsea@firstuniv.org:
- Your name
- Your contact Info (address, phone, email)
- Your racial identity
- Why do you want to do this training?
- How does your faith inform your desire to do this work?
- Why is racial justice training important to First Universalist?
We hope you will consider joining us on this journey!
