Uncomfortable Conversations about Race

January 12, 2016

February 21 training with the Episcopal and Interfaith Partners 

In 2016, The Interfaith Coalition Against Racism will continue to train itself and others on how to have "uncomfortable conversations" with one another about racism. The next training session will take place at Trinity United Church of Christ on Sunday, February 21, beginning at 2:30 pm and continuing through the afternoon and early evening. The Episcopal Diocese has reserved seats for this training. If you would like to participate in this event, please contact Jackie Lynn.  
Training participants are invited to stay for the evening service at Trinity, which begins at 6 pm and is a part of Trinity’s celebration of African Heritage month.   

Our History with the Interfaith Coalition Against Racism
In December of 2014, Chicago Sinai Congregation, Fourth Presbyterian Church, La Salle Street Church, St. Chrysostom’s Episcopal Church and St. James Episcopal Cathedral joined together to seek justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and countless other black boys and men and women. In the fall of 2015 the coalition began its work to train ourselves and others to host uncomfortable conversations with one another about racism.  For more information contact Jackie Lynn.
