Anti-Racism Institute

The Anti-Racism Institute 

The Anti-Racism Institute is sponsored by Lancaster Theological Seminary and the Lancaster YWCA. It is held annually in January on the weekend preceding the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The program is open to 30 members of the community. We request that you plan to attend each day.

The Institute begins on Friday with a dinner at 5:00 and ends at 9:00 p.m. Saturday is a full day from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes around 5:00 p.m.

It is important that you attend every session and participate fully in the event.

As the time nears for the Institute, you will receive instructions and a welcome email from one of our facilitators. All materials will be provided and all sessions will be held on the seminary campus in Hafer Center, on the second floor of the Schaff Library.

If you have any questions, please contact Jamie Beth Schindler in the Continuing Education Office at (717) 290-8750, or email
