The Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey Anti-Racism Ministry invites you to take advantage of these sequestered and less scheduled days to enroll in 20 hours of virtual Anti-Racism Training streamed to your computer, tablet or mobile phone.  The training takes a historical approach to help participants understand systemic racism and empower them to confront and organize against racism, inequality, and injustice.  Lecture and discussion topics include “What is Race?”, “Systemic Racism and White Privilege,” “Internalized Racism,” “The Role of the Church,” “Settler Colonialism,” “Racism in Immigration and Naturalization Legislation,” and “The Prison Industrial Complex.”  

The training begins on September 11, 2020 with a Zoom video conference plenary group session to introduce participants and instructors, schedule and program layout, requirements to receive a certificate at the end of the course, and opening exercises.  Each subsequent day through October 2, 2020 participants will be presented with recorded lessons, lectures, and live interactive discussions via Zoom and Moodle, an online training platform. Everyone is welcome, one need not be Episcopalian. All faiths, even those without religion, are invited.
