On October 6 and 20, 2018, we are offering the Living the Pledge workshop for anyone, but especially for clergy and teams from faith communities in the Greater Richmond area who are interested in bringing the Richmond Pledge to their congregations.
The primary goal of this workshop is to develop confidence in our abilities to:
- Integrate the Richmond Pledge into our daily lives;
- Recognize and challenge systemic racism;
- Confront racism and bias in our everyday lives; and
- Take leadership in ending racism in our community, our culture, and our lives.
As part of the workshop, participants develop a community of support and an understanding of how to use support in deepening our work in building a just and equitable multicultural world.
The cost is $55 per person (waived or adjusted on request) and includes lunch both days as well as a pre-planning and follow-up consultation with the Richmond Pledge organizers to help you bring the Pledge to your congregation/community.
Participants are asked to commit to being present both days and to do workshop assignments before and between sessions.
Space is limited. To register contact Sheryl Johnson (804-783-7903) or email@example.com or register online.
The Richmond Pledge to End Racism is a community-wide effort, sponsored by First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond to address racism in all its forms. To learn more about the Pledge, visit www.richmondpledge.org
