Saturday, Nov. 4 from 8am-5pm
Location: Civic Plus (302 S. 4th St., Manhattan)
Are you committed to an anti-racist identity and trying to learn more about how you can join others in dismantling white supremacy? Join us!
We will be using Part Two of the four-part White Privilege curriculum from the UCC and you are invited to join us whether or not you participated in Part One during Sunday School this past spring. Friends from Bethel AME will also join us for this retreat. Guests from the wider community are welcome to join us - please note that the curriculum is explicitly Christian. Childcare and activities for children will be provided throughout the retreat, so you can bring the whole family!
Our facilitators will be Nancy Eggen, Minister for Racial Justice for the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the UCC, and Julia Gaughan, member of Plymouth UCC in Lawrence.
There is a registration fee of $10 per person for this event and you can pay online via the registration form OR by submitting a check to the church office (memo: anti-racism retreat). Scholarships are available for those who need them. Please contact Pastor Caela to inquire about a scholarship. We do not want the cost of the event to interfere with anyone's ability to attend.
Trouble with the online registration? Contact the church office (e-mail or call 785-537-7006).
