St. Luke’s Grand Rapids, in partnership with Christ Wyoming, Good Shepherd Holland and the Synod Anti-Racism Team, will host a synod-wide anti-racism training Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Childcare is available. There is no charge for the event. Please register in advance.
Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance (LEDA) of Holland will lead the seminar. LEDA works to dismantle barriers to ensure people of all ethnic backgrounds have equal access and opportunity to participate fully in the life of the community. October’s anti-racism seminar will contrast our common desire for social justice with the existing mindsets and systems that sustain inequitable outcomes. Our seminar reflects on the historical, religious and cultural settings that shape perception of self and others. This interactive and experiential program aims at promoting socially conscious strategies to effectively create and sustain the communities we all want to see.
