DISMANTLING RACISM TRAININGS

Dismantling Racism training seeks to increase "racial understanding, healing and reconciliation." It is offered several times throughout the year and is required for all parish clergy and all lay leaders, including vestry members.  Trainings are offered by the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing.

The training was adjusted in 2012 to "reflect the fruit of several conversations that the commission has conducted," said Dr. Catherine Meeks of Riverdale, commission chair. "We have wanted to re-frame the training in a way that makes the experience a part of the ongoing spiritual formation of the participants," she said.

Training for members of the Diocese of Atlanta runs for a single day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Although there is no charge to take the training, pre-registration is required no later than one week in advance. Each class is limited to 25 people. No more than six people from the same parish can take the class on the same day. 


Currently, the Dismantling Racism Training will be held online via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST.  To participate in the online training, you must have access to video and audio capabilities on your computer or mobile device. The registration process remains the same. Class size will remain limited to 25 people. Online training is temporary.  In-person classes will resume when permitted. All in-person classes are held throughout the Diocese of Atlanta.
