Dismantling Racism Workshop: Anti-Racism Training for Leaders of Faith Communities
Especially now, work on justice and inclusion presents itself as an imperative to communities of faith. In the Episcopal Church, one of the ways we live into this mandate to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being” (BCP p.305) is through General Convention resolutions requiring anti-racism training for those in positions of leadership.
All church members are invited and encouraged to participate in anti-racism training offered by the Commission to End Racism.
In the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, all persons serving in the following capacities are required to take anti-racism training sponsored by the Episcopal Church:
- Clergy in any form of church ministry
- Diocesan Council
- Standing Commission
- Board of Trustees
- Diocesan Staff
- Leaders of key diocesan committees and commissions
- Convocation Deans and Presidents
- Deputies to General Convention

Training is $25 (need based scholarships available) and includes lunch.
