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 Episcopal Center for Racial Healing.

The training was adjusted in 2012 to "reflect the fruit of several conversations conducted by the Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism (now the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing)," said Dr. Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Center "We re-framed the training in a way that makes the experience a part of the ongoing spiritual formation of the participants."

Training runs for one day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST. Although there is no fee to take the training, pre-registration is required no later than one week in advance of the class date. Each class is limited to 25 people. No more than six people from the same parish/organization 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. If two people in the same home/building are taking the class on the same date, they MUST be on two separate devices in different rooms. 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 only throughout the Diocese of Atlanta.
