Abstract Structure


All remaining 2023 Dismantling Racism Training classes are full.


We are currently working on the 2024 Dismantling Racism Training class schedule. It will be posted once it is finalized. 

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."

Currently, Dismantling Racism Training is held online via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT. There will be breaks during the class and a lunch break. Classes are first come, first serve. The class you register for may be full although it does not show "Registration Closed" next to the dateEach class is limited to 20 people. No more than six people from the same parish/group/organization can take the class on the same day. 


To participate in the online training, you must have access to video and audio capabilities on your computer or mobile devicePlease be sure your device has these capabilities and that they are functioning on the day of your class, if not, you will be removed from the class. Although this is an online class, you are required to be on screen during the class.
