Anti-Racism Workshop

Sunday, June 25 at 11:30, 90 mins

(Click here to add this event to your personal Google calendar)

Being actively anti-racist means making a commitment to a lifelong journey of learning and unlearning. Yet, for a multitude of parents, guardians, and caregivers, questions often arise surrounding when that journey should begin and how do you appropriately broach the subject of race and racism with children of all ages.

If you have asked yourself these questions, and wrestled with wanting to address this deeply important topic the “right way”, this is the workshop for you!

Join writer, speaker, activist and anti-racism educator, Patricia A. Taylor, as she shares tools, resources, real-time examples, and practical applications that will leave you feeling equipped and ready to start and continue these conversations in your home in a meaningful way.

It’s not a question of if, but when, and the right time is always now!

We are so excited to present a NEW faith formation opportunity this summer for elementary school-aged children called, Justice Camp. This will be a day camp that will focus on 4 themes of justice: Anti-Racism, Welcoming Immigrants, Climate Justice, and Food Justice. Each day, children will rotate through a workshop presented by partners who are professionals on the topic, a few initial partners are the Byrd Institute at OSU, a professional food justice advocate, and The Columbus Crew. Participants will also rotate through stations that include snacks, stories, games, faith connection, and a service project.
