Racial Justice Institute

The Racial Justice Institute 

Lancaster Theological Seminary is partnering with YWCA Lancaster to present Racial Justice Institute Part 2, a three-day workshop to be held on the Seminary campus at 555 West James Street, Lancaster. 

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday

February 26, 27, 28

8:30 am to 5:00 pm daily

Please note: Attending Racial Justice Part I, or something similar, is a required prerequisite for attendance.

The workship will provide participants with a common understanding of racism, and a foundation for beginning to dismantle the institutional and systemic racism that pervades the institutions and organizations in our lives.

Participants will be equipped with a better understanding of the separate experiences, work, and responsibilities of People of Color or White People. They will be introduced to a fundamental anti-racist, multi-cultural, organizational/institutional analysis model and leave the institute with a tangible plan of action for themselves and/or their “change team.”

Continental breakfast, refreshments, snacks, and lunch will be provided. Participants work through journals, workbooks, and toolkits that they can use to study, question, and better understand the history, context, and impact of racism on individuals and society.

The Racial Justice Institute is led by cultural bridges to justice, a national consortium of highly effective trainers. jona olsson and Achebe Betty Powell have delivered the Institute to the Lancaster community for more than 20 years. www.culturalbridgestojustice.org/programs/racism/racial-justice-institute/
