ANTI-RACISM / PRO-RECONCILIATION TRAINING
October 30th ~ 9:00am – 5:00pm
at Heights Christian Church, 17300 Van Aken Blvd., Shaker Heights, OH 44120
This workshop is designed for new and current ministers wishing to gain or maintain standing with the Christian Church in Ohio. This course is for DOC Ministers who have not attended this Anti-Racism training before. United Church of Christ and other Ministers are also welcome to attend for their denominational requirements.
Attendees gather for a day of training in which they learn basic definitions of racism, prejudice, and discrimination, watch videos that demonstrate the damage done by systemic and person racism, and shared stories based on their experience. Part of the training includes filling a timeline called the Wall of History in which participants write down instances of racism and resistance, beginning with colonial America and concluding in the present day. The day of training begins with prayer and Bible study and concludes with worship and prayer.
