Understanding and Analyzing Systemic Racism Workshop

Explore the historical development of systemic racism and its continuing effects in our society. Examine the ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White people. We’ll help you struggle with the tough questions and begin to equip you with the skills to dismantle racism and transform your institution.

Early Registration $95; Regular Registration $125 — ELCA Members (use Promo Code: MCSYNOD)

  • October 17-19, 2019

NOTE: If you register and do not attend the workshop the Metropolitan Chicago Synod Antiracism Team must still pay for your workshop seat ($280 - $350). Therefore, “no shows” will not be offered the subsidized registration rate for future workshops.
