CORE Dismantling Racism Training

The Dismantling Racism Task Force will sponsor an opportunity for members of the Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan to participate in a two-day intensive offered by CORE (Communities Organizing for Racial Equity, formerly “CORR”). 


The training, titled “Understanding Racism” covers the many facets of racism, from its origins to its outward manifestations. It explores scripture, definitions of racism and common language, and encourages participants to look inward at their biases, as well as outward at the institutions and locations in which they live, work, and worship. This particular offering will be contextualized for an Episcopal audience. 

March 4-5, 2022

The program takes place Friday, 7-9pm and Saturday, 9:30-430pm.

Grace, Grand Rapids
